Learn how to choose the right project type for your Visual Studio 2015 project.
- [Instructor] Welcome to Visual Studio Essential Training Understanding the Project Types. This is a course where you will explore the various project templates available for creating applications in Visual Studio. I'll start by looking at empty templates and then switch to examining the common features in all templates. Then comes a quick tour of the vast library of pre-configured templates available. Next, I'll look at how you can use the new project dialog to explore third-party templates and samples, and automatically deploy the new templates to your copy of Visual Studio.
Finally, you'll see how to use the templates for ASP.NET, MVC and web API, universal Windows apps and see how to create class libraries and DirectX applications, and explore the world of WPF in Windows Forms. That's the topics for this course. If you're ready, let's get started.
