We use Rider for game development in Unreal. There are other development platforms for Unreal but Rider with the new support for Unreal really helped make the development more agile and proved to be the most reliable one. The two main features that other platforms lack are IntelliSense considering Unreal Macros and quick searches, but all the other tools within the platform are great.

All .NET developers in our company have freedom of choice regarding the IDE they want to use, however, we are only using 2 products: JetBrains Rider and Visual Studio. JetBrains Rider is mainly used for rapid application development and for building prototypes. It is used both by developers, but also by QA testers in their daily work.

All five of our engineers have adopted Rider as our primary IDE for .NET development, which is our main project. We develop an online, web-based service with components in .NET Framework, .NET Core, and Xamarin. Rider has been a successful alternative to Visual Studio to improve developer experience and productivity.

I personally use Rider daily instead of Visual Studio Enterprise when I am working on our back end web API that is written in ASP.Net Core. I've also started using Rider instead of Visual Studio for our deployment and upgrade applications, and all the utilities that we write to deploy our applications into Azure and AWS. Since I prefer to use Linux as my desktop, instead of Windows, it was an easy choice to start using Rider. However, after using it, I am now hooked on it and also use it on my Windows desktop when I need to work with Windows applications.

If you've ever used Resharper in Visual Studio, you will find that the refactorings and code suggestions that it gives you are very well thought out, make your code cleaner and easier to read, and help you write better code. The only problem with this is that it can sometimes negatively affect the performance of Visual Studio, sometimes so much that you have to turn it off if it's a very large project. Rider gives you back those nice refactorings without the performance hit.

It's smooth, works well, is highly stable, and gets out of my way.
