What is most valuable?

Personally, in my job as a developer, the version control system has been very helpful. It is also flexible enough to let me use Git as well as its own version control mechanism.

How has it helped my organization?

It is an excellent IDE, but the corporate features are what set it apart. We use TFS for our scrums, which links our tasks to actual code changes.

What needs improvement?

It would be nice if Visual Studio's extensions and updates could self-correct, if they are not working or disabled, and also inform the user. Lately, for example, NuGet Package Manager has failed gracefully, but it did not say why.

What do you like best? It is a multi-purpose IDE, where I can easily build C++, C#, and many other languages projects without any difficulty. I can develop mobile apps, desktop applications, web applications, etc. It provides me the ability to deploy applications directly from the Visual Studio. Its layout editor is pretty fast and easy to use.  It is becoming the one and the only IDE which give us the ability to build cross platform applications at one place with Xamarin support. I can use my core code across Android, iOS, and Windows apps. I only have to set its layout. This is also in the IDE. What do you dislike? Its IntelliSense, while overall good, I think it can be improved by covering the local status. It should show local variables first in IntelliSense and...

What do you think of Microsoft Visual Studio?

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. • Improvements to My Organization: No one can say that VS IDE is bad.

Going community has boosted all that. • Valuable Features: Code navigation by symbols Document auto formatting Testing tools Publishing tools Performance testing Reference usage  • Room for 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. • Use of Solution: Three to five years.
