What makes it unique when compared to Amazon's Lambda is that it comes with rich tooling support with Visual Studio, seamless workflow and systems integrations, and built-in DevOps with Visual Studio Team Services, GitHub, and Bitbucket. The company announced at its BUILD conference in Seattle today that the new Visual Studio for Mac is now ready and has thus been released for Apple's computers.

Microsoft believes that the Visual Studio for Mac will enable developers to work seamlessly across windows and Mac, with full support for mobile, web, and cloud workloads, and previews of Xamarin.ioT support.

Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 is an integrated development environment or IDE which allows MacOS users to create the web and mobile apps as well as games using Unity and cloud apps using.NET Core and Xamarin.

Microsoft yesterday at its Second Day of the Build 2017 announced that developers will now be able to develop apps for iOS and Android by using the.NET Framework on a Windows PC which will work on all three platforms by using a single shared code base.

Visual Studio for Mac is equipped with web tooling support for JSON, HTML, and CSS which are all important file formats to create a more responsive and awesome looking app.

Leading the way is the big announcement of the general availability of Visual Studio for Mac.

Visual Studio 2017 has been updated to version 15.2, delivering the usual bug fixes along with new functionality, such as the return of Python workload, Data Science workload (includes R, Python, and F#), and added support for Typescript 2.2.

A related aside: As the Register reported recently, there's concern in the.NET developer community about some of the directions Microsoft is taking with ASP.NET Core.
