Pros: Microsoft hasn't been a very good partner to developers. So it was a huge surprise when many of my friends recommended giving Visual Studio a try. I was reluctant for a few months. But when I finally did use it, wow! It really sped up my workflows. Also - it's FREE, which is mindblowing!

Cons: In a weird way, I don't like that it's a Microsoft product. On one hand, if this is Microsoft's attempt to reclaim the giant developer migration when many went to Apple, it's a really good one.

Overall: It just makes my coding life easier, as it quickly gives me tips as I write.

Pros: I LOVE that Visual Studios shows you the errors in your code when coding in C#. This has helped me so much as I have created programs for the various projects I am working on. While it doesn't tell you how to fix your issue, it is extremely helpful for debugging code when you are learning how to code new things.

Cons: I wish that Visual Studios would show the error within the code when coding in Javascript. Visual Studio isn't built with the ability to show coding errors in Javascript, which mean you have to debug everything in the webpage, and then go back to change the code. While this isn't a killer process, it is a time killer over the space of many hours.

Visual Studio has become my main coding instrument, that's a lot to say.

Pros: I was using other coding softwares for a while, most of them present bugs from time to time, just freezing or closing themselves. Visual studio has proven itselft to be one of the most consistent and trust worthy programs I have used. You can even set up plugins to make your life easier, like color changing and other useful stuff. Also, it's good to see any recognition of variables or methods you are using in the autocomplete mode, most of the programs don't show all the needed words.

Cons: The thing that I probably dislike the most, is that opening or closing the software really takes a while. It tries to load everything in memory , so in big projects, it really can be painful just to open it up.

Overall: Coding made easier for any program.

Pros: My favorite part of Visual Studio is the diagnostics option .It really helps me determine where I am at and where I need to go . It's pretty broad on potential uses and all around great tool.

Cons: I find it very hard to navigate and in my opinion the interface could use some cosmetic work .Also very hard to master.

Pros: It is an excellent tool for multiple utilities, it does not need several software to program in different languages, it allows the creation of software as web development environments, it is fundamental when it comes to programming in Windows

Cons: It has several contras one of them and one of the most important, is that it is not strict with its rules and allows a program to run even if it is poorly designed, something that should not, should include a revision or rule when exporting the creation

Overall: One of the best-known programs when it comes to programming under Windows, multiple languages and web development environment in a single program

Pros: GitHub integration is incredible. All you do is save and the commit is registered right to your GitHub account. It has streamlines the entire process, using GitHub used to be something that you had to learn and figure out. The Visual Studio integration has removed that barrier of entry and made it intuitive, easy, and most of all, fun! No more committing to GitBash and typing into a command prompt! It's all as simple as a click of a button!

Cons: Lots of updates. Can be slow at times. Learning curve is high with certain interfaces and options. Computer has to have the right specs for software to run at optimal speed.

Pros:
As a daily user of this app, I must say that it is wonderful for each of its functionalities besides that it simplifies you a lot when it comes to coding with each one of your aids, it makes everything easier, its interface that you can changing color helps a lot with the eyes and when you have an error in the code it tells you very clearly where that error may be, it's a wonder

Cons:
The only complaint I can have is that with medium or low range PC sticks a lot and that makes it a bit tedious sometimes

Overall: my day to day and I can not be happier

Pros: I'd love how Visual Studio started integrating 3rd-party components on their recent versions. Upgrades are delivered modular so you won't have to update the entire app.

Visual Studio helps beginner and professional developers carry out their programming tasks with ease. It is easy to learn and get familiarized with. I wouldn't bother searching for any other alternative. Most computers runs Windows and Visual Studio helps you create Windows Apps. It's a tool to jump-start your career.

Cons: I don't like it when it sometimes crash for reasons I don't know. It also sometimes hangs up when it's "doing" some background process when you open up a project. But in overall, I'm happy and continue to use this product.

Cons: It need a lot of space if install all the tools and need some power from your cpu and some RAM memory to make it to work well, otherwise it struggles to run (and more if use plugins that need algo more memory and cpu)

Overall: it cover all my needs to make software on multiple languages and for multiple platforms, it is an all in one solution

Overall great if you are in a .NET shop. Has limitations but good product overall.

Pros: Everything I can say about visual study is positive. Undoubtedly, the best thing is the ease of the language allows you to create applications for Windows in a very short time which makes it effective with the least investment in both time and money.

Cons: The price of the license is without a doubt the most relevant disadvantage I can observe. Another negative feature is that there is no way to export the code to other platforms different from windows.

Pros: Coding has never been easy in programming, thank to visual studio which helps teams and individuals to have a single place where they can start a project and finish it even from different locations, for teams they can collaborate online while working on the same project

Cons: this software needs a user to concentrate, time to learn, focus on what you have done and keep in mind what you have been doing, programming is never easy so you can expect to complete a programme overnight, you can find this with all other software's

Overall: As a CEO of a company, i manage to help clients who are looking to start their careers in programming and the use of this software has helped help others

Pros: Okay, developers don't like change. But I decided that Sublime's pop-ups we're doing too much. I never switched to something else because I felt they were too buggy or featureless. VS Code is the perfect blend between the two.

Cons: It doesn't code for me? Lol. I would like to connect it directly to Bitbucket but I haven't figure out how to do that.

Pros: Where do I start? I think the best feature is Intellisense. I really love when Visual Studio shows the classes, methods and fields in Intellisense, or the params needed for all methods, even the overloads.
The dark skin is pretty awesome, I like the colors used on it.
I like the debugger, very easy to use.

Cons: It doesn't have support for Ruby on Rails (I don't know about the newest versions).
It takes a very long time to install.

Overall: Very good IDE, it helped me to be more productive while coding.

Pros: Visual Studio's IntelliSense feature is a life saver! This coding auto suggestion function saves me a lot of time and frustration by suggesting relevant context based code, which dramatically reduces the chance for errors. The visual application builder is also fantastic tool for creating software.

Cons: The Mac version of Visual Studio is unable to let me work on some of my Windows based programs. I have to boot my Windows partition or a go to a PC in order to tackle these files, which is annoying. Hopefully Microsoft can create some solution.

Feature of showing references of each methods and variables upfront helps in making life easier. This feature is missing in Eclipse IDE.

Cons: Price is on slightly higher side. Ideally, price should reduce with increase in number of subscriptions. Also, during installation it gives n number of option to choose to initiate installation which becomes confusing for a person who wishes to write simple C# code.

Overall: Writing simple C# test code.

Pros: "Search all" feature is very powerfull. It can search a line or word in thousands of files really quick in a matter of few seconds. You can also search using regex. Also we can have multiple windows for different search results.

Cons: The most annoying things is when the visual studio gets freezed. And we don't know when it will come back to normal state again. There is no description shown anywhere what exactly went wrong with the IDE. In most cases you have to forcefull restart the visual studio. You can lose some unsaved data in this process.

Pros: Microsoft's Visual Studio is the best for developing for Windows environments. It includes a suite of templates you can use to start your projects, and you can download more templates online, depending on what type of project you are doing. The intelisense feature is great for code completion, it will save you a lot of typing and help you structuring your code.

Cons: There are some feature that are hidden away in submenus, and other features that seem complicated to use. But if you take some time to learn about them, it will help you a lot with your software development projects

Pros: It seems to me excellent that it has collaborative versions, so that a team can carry out the project together, even in a scenario of a distributed work team, where people can be working at different times

Cons: In my opinion I do not have any disadvantage to highlight except the high cost of the license of the professional version, and thus be able to market our software

Pretty good game engine.

Pros: It's from windows. Cheap. It has a big database including templates, textures and more. Real time colaboration, great community.

Cons: You have to know too much about programming to use the software. The interface looks pretty nice but it's not as friendly as it should be.

Pros:
*It has a very fast learning curve.

*Integrates the design and implementation of Windows forms.

*It allows to easily use the platform of Windows systems, since it has almost total access to the Windows API, including current libraries.

*It is one of the most widely used languages, so it is easy to find information, documentation and sources for projects.

*Easily extensible through DLL libraries and ActiveX components of other languages.

*It makes it possible to add support for executing scripts, VBScript or JScript, in applications using Microsoft Script Control.7

*It has access to the DirectX multimedia API (versions 7 and 8). A component to work with OpenGL 1.1.8 is also available, unofficially.

*There is a version, VBA, integrated into Microsoft Office applications, both Windows and Mac, which allows programming macros to extend and automate functionalities in documents, spreadsheets and databases (Access).
Although it allows to develop large and complex applications, it also provides an adequate environment to make small rapid prototypes.

Cons:
*Versioning problem associated with several runtime DLL libraries, known as DLL Hell.

*Poor support for object-oriented programming.

*Inability to create multi-threaded applications, without having to resort to calls from the Windows API.

*Dependence on complex and fragile COM registry entries.

*The ability to use controls in a single form is very limited compared to other tools.

Overall:
I did a university project and the result was quite good, I recommend it for small projects

Incredibly powerful software, but comes with a steep learning curve

Pros: What I've come to appreciate most about Visual Studio is the massive number of keyboard shortcuts available, if you are willing to take the time to learn them. It is by far the most intuitive application that I've ever used, and never fails to surprise me with what it will do for me, without me having to even think about it. Very flexible development tool that works well for everything from small apps to large scale enterprise applications.

Cons: The learning curve is quite steep. For people who are new to development, the Visual Studio experience can be quite overwhelming. While the vast number of keyboard shortcuts is an awesome feature, discovering and learning them all would be extremely time consuming. There are so many functions that can be accessed via shortcut, and there is no easy to way to discover new shortcuts within the application. Perhaps it could benefit from some kind of helper that appears when you access a function that mentions the keyboard shortcut that you could have used instead. There is really no good way to learn VS other than through experience, which I suppose isn't out of the ordinary, but I would love to have a way to learn the basics of the application itself, not related to any sort of actual development.

Pros: I started using it in my first year of university and learned in labs, It's one of the best IDE in the world for programming. I learned several coding languages, recommend this software.

Cons: It crashes sometimes, takes time to start. Projects miss libraries when freshly imported. The bugs need to get fixed.

Microsoft visual studio is very great IDE for developing the application

Pros: I like that Microsoft has embraced the open-source model and offered a pretty fully-featured IDE for free to students and developers just getting started.

Cons: While it's pretty fully featured, it's still a bit clunky/bloated compared to IDEs like Sublime or Atom.

In my opinion it is the best IDE, you can do everything from designing to developing and testing.

Pros: Multiple language support also you can customize your environment as you want like for you can set it up for web applications or console or window applications for different programming like VB or asp. Net or c#. TFS allows you to work with team and share project code etc.
intellisense works perfect while coding.

Cons: Need better processing power CPU for smoother experience while building and loading large solutions and database projects.
As compared to other IDE's it is costly.

Overall: This will make your work much easier.

Pros: I have used this software from version VS 2010 to up to date VS2017. Its very handy to work with. It offers a lot of features and functionalities that are really easy to understand. It offers a lot of integrations whether it is Resharper or any coverage tool or your website azure deployment.
For me learning azure deployment was way too easy as it is just a matter of 2-3steps alone.
There are easy steps to find some matching texts that too can be filtered with the type of file you want to search in. The solution explorer offers simple shortcuts to rename a file or just move a file from one location to another.
The find and replace functionality that too can be customized whether you want to match case or not.
The software's integration with Nunit code coverage helped me a lot in gaining confidence in the quality of my tests as while coding I can see the coverage of the lines. The tortoise git integration is something that is really helpful. You can easily see your commit history and differences. I personally like this software very much. Try it.
It has a lot to discover.

Cons: The only problem that I see is the heaviness of the software as sometimes it hangs my system and you need to have at least 16gb ram to work greatly with this software. VS2017 is the latest I have worked on and although it has great features but it is a very heavy software and with heavy extensions it become slow.

its very good software of Microsoft for developing the code and applications

Pros: Provides easy to use interface for install nuget packages to a project. It also provides great code completion tool (IntelliSense) which gives great assistance in writing code

Cons: Visual studio can sometimes start up very slowly if you don't have a high-performance computer, which can be very demotivating

Overall: Great tool for creating applications, with easy to use plugins to develop using a variety of programming languages
