    Can you please let me know the recommended or most mature development tools used for .NET and SDL Web 8? Like VS 2015 support? Or what extension is the most mature and used for it?

    • Pankaj Gaur says:

      Can you be a bit specific on what development you are talking?
      Like if you are doing a dev using DD4T, DXA or developing an Event System, Custom Resolver or C# TBB code, then VS 2015 suited best.
      If you are still inclined towards dying DWT TBB, then you can either use the CME itself or can use a Dreamweaver Add-in in VS 2015

      I am sorry, if I didnt get your question yet

        Thx for your quick answer…as a matter of fact I’m pretty new to this. I know a little of Sitecore using Sitecore Rocks but a new client needs SDL Web now. So for example, Do you think between DD4T and DXA there is a clear winner to work with? Is any of those more mature?
        I’m not sure I understand what Event System, Custom Resolver or C# TBB code is or is used for, Would you be so kind to let me know with a few words?

        Thx! Guillermo.
