Microsoft Visual Studio Review

Most valuable features include code navigation by symbols and document auto formatting

What is our primary use case?

Developing various .NET solutions, making sure code is well tested and debugging issues with it, then publishing the code from the application.

How has it helped my organization?

No one can say that VS IDE is bad. It is definitely sophisticated and provides many out-of-the-box features. Going community has boosted all that.

What is most valuable?

  • Code navigation by symbols
  • Document auto formatting
  • Testing tools
  • Publishing tools
  • Performance testing
  • Reference usage 

What needs improvement?

Since it is a heavy product, it is somewhat slow in building and executing the code in a localhost environment and it consumes a lot of resources.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.
