    I use day by day working with game development integrated with Unity and to prepare classes as a Professor in the area.

    Pros

    Microsoft Visual Studio is very well integrated to other tools for application and games programming. It is plenty of highlights and default settings that help the workflow! You only need to install and use, is much enough. But, it is possible customize as much as you want too. One of my favorite computational tools.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be heavy for some computational systems, but it is not a big setback, because there is lighter version.

    Powerful IDE but memory hungry

    Reviewed on 07/01/2021

    I love to write code using the Visual Studio Integrated development environment (IDE) software....

    I love to write code using the Visual Studio Integrated development environment (IDE) software. Visual Studio (IDE) is powerful but with great power comes great responsibility. That is where the software lacks. Its memory hungry and slows down the system after long use. The latest release version of the software is 2019 which is what I have been using for now. However, the most stable version was in 2017. It hardly crashed on me or made my system go to its knees. There are few kinds of editions available for this software like Developer edition, Enterprise edition, etc. that one can subscribe to depending on the need. However, the subscription cost is more than average compared to other IDEs.

    Pros

    a) It's feature-rich and provides strong and seamless integrations with several other products from the Microsoft family.
    b) One can develop any kind of application written using any kind of technology through this IDE be it .Net, Java, JavaScript, etc.
    c) The software is easily extensible through extensions that help one integrate third-party components easily.
    d) It has an intelligent auto-complete sensor that provides accurate suggestions for the variable names you try to create, libraries you try to add into the current code class file, and even tells you all the dependencies of the class in a very easy to read format.
    e) There are individual wndows for each kind of tasks like examining the current project and solution, examining the tests written for the application, checking the variable watches, compiler output, errors, etc to name a few.
    f) The UI can be customized to one's heart's content. The windows can be arranged as per the needs, multiple windows can be grouped into tabs for easy navigation.
    g) It's even intelligent to suggest ways to improve the performance of the application that you are trying to create and how to make the project solution load faster.

    Cons

    a) The IDE takes a long time to load and once it's fully active with the project solution loaded, it really takes up a lot of RAM making even a good and powerful system slow down in the long run.
    b) The IDE crashes occasionally, especially when you do a lot of debugging using it. However, when the app restarts after the crash, it does give you the option to recover the last saved work. So that's handy.
    c) The menu is way too vast and it's easy to get lost in them trying to find out a certain option. Thankfully there is a global search box for the app to quickly type and find the option you are looking for.
    d) The updates are released quite frequently. Since each update is large (> 500MB), its takes a while to update the software thereby interrupting your work.

    Quite pleased with the plethora of features VS has to offer, though the IDE could really benefit from an interface overhaul.

    Pros

    Starting a C# project & adding libraries & plugins have thus far been flawless with minimal frustration when trying to figure out how to do certain functions (in the IDE, not code-wise).

    Cons

    Been using Visual Studio since 2010 & while I have zero issues with the WinForm app interface, I believe that VS needs more UI customizations for WinForm especially when trying to create an aesthetically-appealing (not a plain) interface to entice users to use the software more frequently.
