Default Visual Studio for Mac (!) (?) (?!)

Quote:
This isn’t much of a surprise, of course: the plan all along, as explained at last year’s Build, has been to weave Xamarin into the Visual Studio family at just about every level. But some may still be reeling at the fact that Visual Studio really and truly is available for macOS.

You’ll be able to build native mobile, Windows, and Mac apps, in Visual Studio, on your Mac. Some people are probably in denial about this so I’m repeating this just for them.

I don't do much with Macs anymore because of my job, but this still blows me away. I've kept a side-eye on Xamarin for awhile, because VS has always been my favourite IDE, I really like C#... but it's still crazy to see an actual full release of Visual Studio for OSX.

I hope someone here is able to take it for a spin and let me know how it goes. Just quickly scanning some comments there's mention of taking forever to fire it up, but that's typical of the "MS on Mac" experience in general.

Anyway, as a code-hobbyist who wishes I could spend more (or sometimes any) time making stuff, news like this gives me a least a quarter-chub.

PS. I've included optional punctuation in the thread title so you can decide for yourself which one you want to apply when you read it.

I've been using VS Code for about 6 months now. I absolutely love it. I don't really have any need to use Visual Studio for Mac yet, but I'm interested.

Does VS Code have support for Ruby?

I believe so. I use it for Angular and Node and it's brilliant for that.

+1 for Visual Studio Code as well. Although, for our company's large MVC projects, this new Visual Studio for Mac should prevent me from having to bootcamp into Windows anymore.
