Visual Studio 2019: New Git Experience

Visual Studio 2019 has now released their new Git Experience. While many developers didn’t know that Visual Studio had Git support within the IDE, our team has been using it regularly since Visual Studio 2017. It has been part of our workflow and this change was jarring and unexpected as we were starting some projects with Visual Studio 2019 Preview Release 16.7 (now released) and 16.8.

After a while, however, I have gotten used to the new approach. I only periodically right-click, without thinking, on the project to look for commit changes and undo options in the context menu (they are now gone).

Last Friday, Microsoft released a new video on Channel 9 called The New Git Experience. I found it to be really good and informative as to their intentions and thus increasing my understanding. I learned some new workflow concepts that I will incorporate while developing and look forward to sharing with others and my team, after verifying its effectiveness with our style of projects.
