We're a small team of developers working in remote offices, currently developing in VS2012 (and in VS2008 for some really old stuff). We're interested in moving to VS2015 in order to deploy MVC5 for new web projects. I'm getting really confused; however, by the options we have available and the Microsoft site simply refers me to a reseller who is only interested in giving me a price, not explaining what we need to purchase.
We primarily develop web applications, previously all web forms apps
We occasionally build console or other compile apps for execution on remote servers
We currently use Source Gear's Vault product for source code management.
We currently use Telerik's testing suite for automated testing which I find clunky and it's load testing capabilities are not good (specifically reporting). We'll need to continue testing so a VS version with good support for testing is a must.
It sounds like I'm leaning towards Professional, but don't know what we gain by moving to Code. For one thing we can't afford $6k per seat for code, and even the $1k for pro is big.
