Which development platform to choose? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    I want to re-learn programming.  I have a BS in Computer Science, but have not programmed for many years.  On my bookshelf is Turbo Pascal 6.0 and Visual Basic 6.0.  This represents my last use of an IDE for writing code decades ago.

    I currently work as a tester at my company.  They use Visual Studio 2013, moving to 2015.  I can install this on my company laptop and use that.  This is one option.

    I'd like to be able to work on my home computer.  So I was looking at the free offerings, Visual Studio Community and Visual Studio Code. 

    I can't tell what Visual Studio Community is.  Visual Studio Code looks like a text IDE kind of like what I used in Turbo Pascal years ago.

    My objective is to learn C#.  I am going to work through The C Programming Language book to start with.
