Whether or not the stereotype of the anti-social coder rings true, up to this point, coding has indeed been a primarily solitary pursuit; with the Visual Studio Live Share update, that function of software development is bound to disappear. The new Microsoft update lets coders work on the same snippets and programs while seeing the changes that their fellow coders are making, like Google Docs for developers.

The Visual Studio Live Share update works for virtually any type of app and any coding language. Users can "edit code and debug together in real time without teammates needing to clone a repro or set up their environment", according to the Visual Studio page. The best part is that each user's themes, keybindings, and customizations stay intact when they use the feature, removing the hassle of adjusting to another developer's workflow.
