Microsoft today announced a new program called Visual Studio Achievements. Using Visual Studio Achievements Extension,Â achievements are unlocked based on your activity. Your code is analyzed on a background thread each time you compile.
A software engineer’s glory so often goes unnoticed. Attention seems to come either when there are bugs or when the final project ships. But rarely is a developer appreciated for all the nuances and subtleties of a piece of code–and all the heroics it took to write it.Â With Visual Studio Achievements Beta, your talents are recognized as you perform various coding feats, unlock achievements and earn badges.
