a complete beginners question:
in the introduction to this book it is recommended to get the Visual Studio 2013 Professional, not Express because of lack of features.
Currently microsofts official www.visualstudio.com
offers Visual Studio 2017 Community, Visual Studio 2017 Professional single license and more 2017 versions, but also the IDE for Visual Studio Professional 2013 for subscribers.
My question is: Will the free Visual Studio 2017 Community suffice for programming with this book, or should I get Visual Studio 2017 Professional, or are the changes from Visual Studio 2013 to 2017 extensive so I should subscribe for the Visual Studio 2013 professional version for the best learning experience?
Also Im currently using Windows 10, should I get a windows 8 installation to complete chapter 18 : Programming for windows 8, or does windows10 support windows8 programming?
Im a pretty new to programming so sorry if Im asking about obvious stuff, thanks.
