As promised a few weeks ago, Microsoft has launched the final RTM version of its Visual Studio 2015 software creation tools to developers. The company will celebrate the release with an online launch event that starts at 11:30 a.m. Eastern time (8:30 a.m. Pacific time).
The release of these tools also means that developers can now finish up their Windows 10 apps so they can be uploaded and published into the store before Microsoft officially rolls out the OS starting on July 20.
The 2.5 hour online launch event will feature a number of online demos showing how developers can use Visual Studio 2015 to create applications for a number of different platforms. It will also feature Q&As with members of the Visual Studio team. The launch comes nine days before Microsoft begins the official rollout of Windows 10 to the general public on July 29.
Microsoft is offering three versions of Visual Studio 2015; the free Visual Studio Community SKU, the $1,199 Visual Studio Professional 2015 with MSDN, and the $5,999 Visual Studio Enterprise 2015 with MSDN.
