Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Visual Studio Team System

VSTS is being used in our organization as the IDE standard of the development team, allowed thanks to its provision team foundation a better organization and delegation of functions in the work team. Visual Studio has allowed an efficient and effective organization and delegation of the work assigned to the development department, which has triggered a significant diversification in the market occupied by the company I represent.
  • It allows you to incorporate different languages, or written code in different encoding to the workflow without affecting the development to which it is oriented
  • By using the Entity Framework you can establish the database design of the system in a correctly standardized and highly efficient way
  • The debugging options allow you to have control of the code that is being made, in addition to having a large amount of plugins that allow to use this feature in different languages
  • There are few things that we can say in a negative way because a pending issue was the license and Visual Studio has a lite option that although it does not have all the features of the full version, allows you to fulfill the work planned
  • The download size of the full version is usually very long and can take a long time to get it
  • In case of applying the entity framework in non-standardized tables (already existing projects) it generates inconveniences in the creation of the entities
  • The management of the development department of the organization has improved considerably
  • It has allowed programmers to grow professionally which is reflected in improvements in terms of the quality of the staff that works in the organization
  • As a negative point, licensing costs are high, however, being more efficient as an organization allows for a greater number of challenges
The versatility of Visual Studio Team System then allows choosing it over the other options, having the possibility of having all the necessary tools to carry out a development project is definitely the reason why it is the mandatory option to choose. The other options are open source options so for emerging teams may seem to be the right ones. However, it is convenient to try the free version before making a choice.
VSTS is a software that can be used by advanced programmers, and it is also an excellent option in a team of developers that begin to train and become familiar with an IDE. It can be used in large development teams or in particular developments is perfectly adapted to the needs of the developer.
