I want to make a course for C++ and sell it. Can I use Visual Studio Community edition for this purpose or not? By using it I mean I plan on teaching people how to use it to make C++ programs. Does this require I buy Visual Studio or can I just use the Visual Studio Community version?

    Hi @Zeeshan Parvez

    I am assuming you are looking to sell as an individual so the following terms would apply to you:

    Cited from https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/vs/community/

    I don't see anything wrong with developing C++ inside VS Community. You can read the terms in full here:
