Visual Studio > Creating your First Project

2015-09-03

This applies to Visual Basic and C#.

There are a few best practices that should be done when you are creating a project in Visual Studio.

  1. Start by selecting File > Project (CTRL + SHIFT + N)

Visual Studio New Project dialog

  1. Select the language you want to create your project in
  2. Select the project type you want
  3. Change the Name of the project to be something describing the work you are going to do
  4. Click OK

It is preferable to name the project at this point then to attempt to rename the project after it has been created.
