Visual Studio confusion
« on: May 03, 2015, 03:32:24 pm »
There's too many languages to choose from for me to make a universal Windows 10 App (like Visual Basic, XAML, C#, ect.). What's the best language for me to make CalcPlay?

Why is there so many languages in Visual Studio to choose from in the first place?

Every language has it's own advantages and disadvantages. Depending what project I am working on I might use a different language. It's just all about using the right tool for the job you have to do.

Yep. It all depends of what you want to do. I don't have a copy of Visual Studio handy, but it's pretty much Visual Basic, C#, web development and Metro apps stuff. One will be more suited than the other on a specific use case, although IMO C# is preferable to Visual Basic and the rest are specific use cases.

C# is more or less as simple as Java for getting on programming, this is a good choice for starting. have fun on VS!
