Able to share information within our team now much more easily than previously when using Visual Studio. A user-friendly platform helps us save valuable time and effort as a group. Also, we are much more likely and earlier to consult with others on the team because of the use of Visual Studio.

If VS has support for the environment or language you're developing with, I think in that case it's always well suited for the task. Especially when developing for projects that are being implemented with Microsoft technologies using VS is surely the best way to go, but it's definitely not limited to just them.

It's useful for app development, debugging, and testing. I've been using it for two years and have seen it grow into a fantastic tool. All of the features, NuGet packages, and settings that enable different types of projects are fantastic. It also has a connection to Azure DevOps and Git. It's a fantastic product that's simple to use.

If you are developing your application which will run in windows application operating system.
Development of standalone application in malls to read barcodes of the product to get the price.
If you are using windows authentication then it will get configured with minimum effort.
Less appropriate- if you to run your code in mac or Linux.

If you want seamless transition between source control and a development IDE, as well as ease of debugging between client-side JavaScript and back-end C#, then it really the only tool to use. The one thing you may not need is the Enterprise Edition; it comes with a lot of features we almost never use. The professional version is most likely enough.

[Depending] on the task, I would probably recommend Visual Studio for anybody, who would like to use a professional IDE and comes from a Windows-based environment. Maybe there are better tools for specific tasks, but for developing .NET projects, or windows based applications, or maybe educational purposes, Visual Studio is a stable candidate to provide a good utility belt for any programming task.

Visual studio is one stop development shop. A centralized place where you can find all development tools and workflow .
The IDE has a user friendly display and debugging tools are quite good . It is especially suited when you are developing .Net applications The updating of tools is easy and smooth . Integration with Azure DevOps is excellent and it continue with improve .

Visual Studio is well suited when you want to build web applications or window applications in C# using the .NET framework. You can build a full-stack application with razor engine frontend, backend in the .NET framework. Easy to connect to databases like SQL and interact with them. A lot of debugging options available to easily find where your code is lacking or throwing issues.

It is less appropriate when you want to build software using the latest technology and languages like React, Nodejs, etc. The free community version of it only provides limited testing options.

Visual Studio IDE is essential for businesses where the primary coding languages are Microsoft Dot Net based, such as C#. If the company uses TFS or Azure DevOps for ALM, then Visual Studio IDE fits perfectly as it was designed to. If the company is not a primarily Microsoft-centric shop, then Visual Studio IDE isn't needed.

Visual Studio IDE is best for developing desktop, web, and mobile applications. It is well suited for both local and cloud environments and helps to standardize software development environments among software development teams, groups, and/or organizations. It comprises a lot of very useful and powerful development features with great IntelliSense to support software developers in achieving their goals in the shortest time with ease.

If your company builds software with different programming language, Visual Studio is the best case tool for it. Because it capable for C+, C#, Visual Basic, .NET and F#. Not only these things, but also we can work with JavaScript, XML, XSLT, HTML, and CSS as a web base developing language. One main feature of the Visual Studio interface designing, we can simply build user interface by using drag and drop method. As a result of these things I highly recommend Visual Studio IDE to all programmers.

Visual Studio is a great solution for large scale .Net projects. The solution file architecture makes it easy to have a Web API, data libraries, and front end code all as separate projects within the solution. Additionally, the integration with Azure resources provided within the IDE makes it easy to explore resources and deploy to hosted services.

Visual Studio might node be suited for smaller sized projects since the IDE can take up a lot of resources. For smaller projects, Visual Studio Code works much easier. Visual Studio might not be suited for projects where you need to deploy from the IDE into environments that are not Azure or Web Deploy based. The FTP deployment options can be finicky and there are no built-in deployment options for other services.

In the education sector, we are developing mobile applications where students can receive written and visual training. We are preparing an environment where 2000 students can work online at the same time. Thanks to the application we have developed, we have developed a design so that students can enter the application online offline. Using the frameworks in the Visual Studio IDE, we develop an efficient and effective application.

If you are a full stack developer and like C# or VB.net, then Visual Studio IDE is definitely the way to go. Sure, you could go with VSCode or some other editor and make everything happen in the command line, but Visual Studio IDE makes most things much easier. Personally, I use both. 90% of the time, I am in Visual Studio IDE and then I keep Code open for various lightweight utility tasks that it is perfect for.

I would still recommend Visual Studio to anyone looking to do anything serious with .NET as an IDE if they have access to it, but for the most part, JetBrains Rider wins my recommendation. I think that if you're working on Windows-specific applications or some specific scenarios that VS supports, you have a use for it.

Visual Studio IDE depends on what you're trying to do. Many modern development practices would garner better service from VS Code for Node.js, GraphQL, etc. However, if you are supporting legacy applications or leveraging the GUI capabilities, then Visual Studio IDE is a great IDE. For a data developer using the SQL Server suite, there is little choice. Databases can undoubtedly be developed outside the IDE, but Analysis Services, Reporting Services, and Integration Services are captive in Visual Studio. Fortunately, the interface is quite mature for these tools, and largely works well.

After installing plugins, we were able to quickly and easily integrate with our Salesforce SandBox and study for Flutter, executing commands directly from Visual Studio IDE without having to open terminals to execute them.

Visual Studio IDE is well suited for end-to-end software development projects, especially the ones that use Microsoft's .NET library. It is possible to start from scratch, develop, debug, test, implement the software, basically all the software development processes through Visual Studio IDE. It is also good to be able to compile an interpreted language project such as Java/Python. UI is very suitable for developers who frequently work at night.

Since Microsoft offers many tiers of this IDE it really could be suited for a single home developer all the way up to enterprise. It does offer a lot of use cases at every entry point. However, if you are an individual developer doing advanced work Visual Studio IDE may not be a good tool because of the cost required. I would point small businesses towards Visual Studio Code instead because it is an open-source supported community and allows you to do some really advanced level development across a suite of coding styles. Visual Studio IDE is going to be better suited for medium to large teams where standards have been established, you use the .Net Frameworks and you want to enforce coding, testing, and building policies.
