I personally prefer virtual machines with snapshots taken when everything is working.
I never install anything on the host OS, so it lasts forever.
I haven't got enough patience to make images and restore them when things go sideways. Also, images interfere with my OCD because it takes forever to get all the settings just so. OTOH most of what I do is Linux so I can't say anything about how Visual Studio et al perform on VMs.
If you need a happy life, use Visual Studio 2015 Community edition, if you need to learn stuff only, and don't really need to work on a project to the end, consider Visual Studio Code.
The sh*t I complain about It's like there ain't a cloud in the sky and it's raining out - Eminem ~! Firewall !~
If you're going down the Angular 2 route, use WebStorm by JetBrains. Visual Studio isn't great with Angular 2 projects.
Ah, I see you have the machine that goes ping. This is my favorite. You see we lease it back from the company we sold it to and that way it comes under the monthly current budget and not the capital account.
All I know is Visual Studio 2015, Winforms, and C#, but I want to try and make an advanced web page.
Would you read a book in a foreign language before trying to learn the language? You probably wouldn't... Then why would you start trying to do advanced things with technologies you do not yet know?
In fact, your question, whether you should stick to VS2015 or learn VS Code because something with Angular 2 shows you don't really know what you're talking about. AngularJS 2 is a front-end framework and has nothing to do with either VS2015 or VS Code, so your question makes no sense.
I've come from WinForms and started web development a good two years ago. Trust me, if you dive in too deep from the start you'll be overwhelmed and get nothing done as a result. You should do what you want to do, but I recommend taking a step back and start with the basics. As it happens, I've written a blog series on starting web development which you may find interesting: Web development #1: Internet and the World Wide Web[^].
I do know a little HTML and C# is not too far from Java so I figured TypeScript should not be that big of a leap.
I expect this project to take me several months as I am a slow study. The winforms project took me six months. But once I get it I will do well. I've done very well with Winforms over the years.
I'm looking for the least painful route. But I also want the most current and efficient route in the long run, and Angular 2 is getting a lot of good press. But I expect it will be also be replaced in a few years.
I am unsure whether this is a bug, or intentional flattening of the layout, but I somehow am happening to love the new layout. "Use every pixel of screen properly", you guys are taking it too seriously.
I have polivalent feelings... Reading some articles is improved with the full width but it looks a bit weird (use to the old one)
What I definitivelly find a bit annoying is the flackering between thin and wide versions randomally
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about? Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
I noticed this was happening yesterday and figured maybe FireFox was just screwing up the margins or padding or something randomly. I actually prefer the side margins - the site looks stretched out and less "focused" without them.
Look good, initially I thought my Firefox was acting up until I saw this post. So far I noticed the Edit Question look kind of odd. Too much empty space on the right. Maybe need some time to adjust to it.
