Visual Studio, Microsoft's integrated development environment (IDE), will soon be available for the Mac. The company will roll out a preview version of Visual Studio for Mac at its Connect(); conference later this week. This version of the IDE focuses on developing Mac, iOS, and Android apps using the C# language, and puts an emphasis on building for multiple platforms.
