Overall Satisfaction with Visual Studio IDE

It is being used across the whole organization. We are using the Enterprise version of it. I am using it currently in the Data Conversion department where we manage tools build in C#, .NET using Visual Studio IDE to handle conversion and deconversion of different types of banking information including reports, statements, documents, check images, etc. Visual Studio helps in solving a lot of business problems, it can be used to build full-stack web applications, window applications, frameworks, etc.
  • Intellisense
  • Customization
  • Debugging
  • Development
  • Pricing
  • Large size
  • High system specifications required
  • Higher Profitability
  • Better Performance
  • Not able to upgrade to latest technology and framework
  • Faster deployment
Eclipse, PyCharm, NetBeans I have used during my internship for smaller applications but to have a full end-to-end application with ease to connect to database and deployment I believe Visual Studio is way better than other available IDE in this space.
Although your options get a bit limited when using its free community version and the enterprise or professional version is a bit costly. So it fits good for a large organization.

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.
