    Why the Community Edition of Visual Studio 2013 is Thrilling for You and Telerik DevCraft

    You probably heard the news about the availability of a free version of Visual Studio 2013 a few weeks ago. This announcement was quite exciting, because (for the first time) is Microsoft is trying to really offer the great .NET framework and associated tools to indie developers, smaller dev shops and students. Probably the most important part of the announcement (for us) is that the Community version allows extensions. Adding extensions was not possible with the previous free editions of Visual Studio, a.k.a. the Express editions. If you wanted to use a third-party product in your daily development (like Telerik DevCraft), you had to buy a non-Express edition of Visual Studio. Today, if you are playing solo or you are part of a team with up to five developers, you can save that cash and just use the latest and greatest of Visual Studio with your favorite Telerik tools and extensions (plus any other third-party tools, of course). Will Telerik DevCraft tools work with it? Yes. All of the Telerik .NET tools work with Visual Studio Community 2013.
