Visual Studio Mac os support


#1

I just got the news letter from GHI with the “Brain Pad” intro. I was instantly amazed by it and want one for my kid (well me also). But can I use Visual Studio for Mac OSX or is it only supported by Visual Studio for windows?

The BrainPad is mainly supported in MakeCode, It gives you clock programming and JavaScript options. You will find this much easier fro your kids. There is nothing to install.

As for Visual Studio, it is possible through TinyCLR but most teachers are finding Visual Studio to be too much to install and handle. We are saving this option for college level.

Thanks for info, for the kids you are right MakeCode is the best.

But do you support Visual Studio for Mac ?

There is no reason why we can’t but we just did not get to it yet.
