Visual Studio 2015 CodeLens Announcements!

In the last couple of weeks we have seen a plethora of awesome announcements and updates regarding Visual Studio 2015! The biggest one has to do with the new product versions. The “merging” of Premium and Ultimate into the new Enterprise level brings a ton of great features, including CodeLens, to a larger group of developers!

That alone was a major announcement, but wait, there’s more. Due to the overwhelming response on User Voice for Visual Studio to make CodeLens available for Visual Studio Professional users, they have done that as well!

This is absolutely amazing and I could not be more excited for all developers. I have been giving a presentation about Visual Studio for ALM and development and this was the number 1 question I have ever been asked. Check out the update below.
