Visual Studio eXtensibility (VSX) is the ability to develop extensions to Microsoft Visual Studio, an Integrated Development Environment from Microsoft. Microsoft Visual Studio itself is a tool can be used to develop applications for the .NET Framework and for the Win32 platform. The Visual Studio Software Development Kit, first released with Visual Studio 2005, included documentation, samples, and code to help develop products that integrate with the Visual Studio product family.

Generally, VSX represents the whole community which is a virtual and growing ecosystem that includes the Visual Studio SDK (VS SDK), all aspects of extending Visual Studio (packages, add-ins, macros, visualizers), .NET developers who extend Visual Studio, Visual Studio Industry Partner (VSIP) companies, and the VS SDK team (also known as the VS Tools Ecosystem team).

Famous quotes containing the words visual and/or studio:

    The chess pieces are the block alphabet which shapes thoughts; and these thoughts, although making a visual design on the chess-board, express their beauty abstractly, like a poem.... I have come to the personal conclusion that while all artists are not chess players, all chess players are artists.
    Marcel Duchamp (1887–1968)

    The studio has become the crucible where human genius at the apogee of its development brings back to question not only that which is, but creates anew a fantastic and conventional nature which our weak minds, impotent to harmonize it with existing things, adopt by preference, because the miserable work is our own.
    Eugène Delacroix (1798–1863)
