Developing traditional Synergy (and Synergy .NET) in Visual Studio
By Marty Lewis, Product Development Manager
Have you ever had one of those crazy product or feature ideas that starts gaining incredible traction very quickly? When you ask enough “what-ifs” of your product set, it’s bound to happen eventually. Late last October, the Synergy DBL Integration for Visual Studio (SDI) team came up with one of those ideas. The team presented it at the Synergy/DE Summit in November, and it has since taken on a life of its own. In this article, I would like to introduce this new SDI feature: support for traditional Synergy development in Visual Studio.
Visual Studio is a very big name in developer communities. Microsoft’s flagship development product is widely known for having some of the best developer-facing experiences available, with features such as IntelliSense, a very mature editor, formatting tools, sophisticated dependency-based build functionality, and extensibility.
