Live Share in Visual Studio lets you code and debug together

At its Build developer conference, Microsoft  today announced that Live Share, its previously 
announced collaborative development feature for Visual Studio and Visual Studio  code, is 
now available to developers who want to give it a try. Until now, this feature, which allows 
developers to better work together, was only available in a private preview — and it’s available 
for free to all developers, even those who use the free Visual Studio code editor.

In a way, Live Share is a bit like using Google Docs for collaboration. Developers can see 
where everybody’s cursor is and when their colleagues are typing, no matter which platform 
they are on. All developers in a Live Share session can stay within their preferred (and 
customized) environment. That gives developers quite a bit more flexibility compared to a 
traditional screen share.

One feature Microsoft heavily emphasized at Build is the ability to share debugging sessions, 
too. That means everybody can set break points and get the full logs. While writing code is 
one thing, being able to share debugging sessions may actually be even more important to
many developers.

Live Share supports all major languages, including C#, Python, Java, Go and C++.
