Speficic questions about Visual Studio Community product

    Question

  • Hi.

    I'm a c# developer and I've always used Visual Studio Professional licensed. I'm developer of different types of applications (mobile, desktop, web sites).

    I have never been worrying about the future of mobile applications that I will develop, because I know that those applications may be introduced in AppStore and PlayStore. I dont know the product Visual Studio Community. I have not been able to find documentation or answers for the following questions:

    With Visual Studio Community, can I develop mobile applications with Xamarin without paying license?
    With Visual Studio Community, can I develop mobile applications with Xamarin and can I introduce these mobile applications to AppStore and PlayStore?
    With Visual Studio Community, can I use Nuget, as well as Visual Studio Professional?

    Thank you for your support and help.

    Yes, we could use VS2015 Community to develop mobile application in free. More information about developing UWP and cross-platform app please refer to the following link:

    >>With Visual Studio Community, can I use Nuget, as well as Visual Studio Professional?

    Yes, here is a document about comparing offers between Community, Pro and Enterprise.

    only some difference in TFS feature between Community and Pro version. And other features are the same.

    Sincerely,
