It’s a great free tool but not as enhanced as IntelliJ platform that JetBrains Rider has. Debugging and access to database is not as comfortable to use. Sure, you can save money on IDE, but may need to spend it on sleeping and stress relief pills.

It helps you develop and not have to think too much about some things because of the IntelliSense support for Unreal (that others don't have) and it has a quick search with multiple types as well. Visual code has an ok search, but no IntelliSense, Visual Studio has a slow search and no IntelliSense.

Microsoft Visual Studio IDE is the oldest player on the market and it has some really good features, however. JetBrains Rider despite being on the market for a much shorter time is an excellent IDE solution as well—super fast and very stable. Frequent updates are very neat and always bring additional value. Visual Studio Code, on the other hand, is quite simple and not that good for enterprise types of projects.

Rider (and the entire IntelliJ suite) has been my preferred IDE for years. Visual Studio is wonderful as well, but Rider just keeps ahead in the important features. More importantly, both IDEs provide healthy competition and I only see this getting better.

Compared to other popular IDEs that aren't .NET specific (such as Eclipse), I don't see any reason to use them unless you need specific features or plugins that the JetBrains family doesn't support.

Rider is hands down smoother and way less glitchy than Visual Studio Enterprise. There are way more refactoring capabilities and spell check so that your code is readable, maintainable, and easy to follow. Since Rider is cross-platform, our developers are no longer constrained to only using Windows. We can now get a familiar development environment across Mac, Windows, or Linux!
