Microsoft Visual Studio Valuable Features

Having also done development within a text, I really enjoyed the (what I believe is called) IntelliSense feature. It helps if you are doing development within a text browser. The integrated debugger is fantastic. None of these are particularly new features. Everybody else has been using it for 20 years too. I find it funny that a lot of people complain about the solution. However, I find that it provides users with so many great and useful features, like console output, for example. You always have the option to dump a whole bunch of items out if you don't need them in the production. While you're coding, it's really nice to be able to print stuff out and make sure that all the data is being organized the way you want it to be. It's got a lot of tools integrated into it. There's a community edition that is absolutely free to use. It's pretty good. View full review »

Visual Studios is a business solution developed by Microsoft. In general, I like it because it integrates many tools into one interface to provide a total solution. I think it is convenient to have everything in one interface. View full review »

Its hard to point the most valuable feature as I see this IDE as a complete package for developers to build software solutions. Live Share, code refactoring, IntelliCode, the debug and diagnosis tooling are all valuable. View full review »

The feature I find most valuable is the fact that it's broad-spectrum, so it can be used for a wide variety of technologies. We are predominately .NET based and we use mostly .NET Core or .NET Framework so I can call in any immediate packages. View full review »

I really like the distributed software programming on the Windows platform and also we need to develop on this platform since the company's computers work with the Windows network. I like that I don't need any additional software to develop on this platform. View full review »

The most valuable feature is the integration with different databases. There are many different databases that it supports. View full review »
