Visual Studio Professional is a unified development experience that enables developers to create multi-tier applications across the web, cloud, and devices.
It enables you to develop applications for Windows, the cloud, phones, Microsoft Office, and Microsoft SharePoint with the same development environment. Plus, you can automatically adapt web applications to target mobile devices with enhanced ASP.NET support for mobile browsers.
The updated Microsoft Blend for Visual Studio includes new, design centric tools for XAML and HTML5 applications. In addition, you can experience the application while you build it with the new interactive mode, significantly reducing the time it takes to create highly interactive applications.
