The best software for developing cross-platform applications

With Visual Studio we were able to solve the following: 1- Developing apps on any platform fast. 2- You can create your custom extensions on Visual Studio which makes it easier to use according to your needs also there are many free and paid extensions for Visual Studio online. 3- It can be integrated with Azure DevOps allowing you to manage your projects according to DevOps with many other features. 4- The applications you develop on Visual Studio Are cross-platform.

Pros

Microsoft Visual Studio is very easy to use. You can start developing applications right from the start. You can create Desktop applications, web applications, and even mobile applications with ease. When errors occur Visual Studio will provide detailed errors that are understandable and easy to read. You can also integrate it with Azure DevOps and manage your projects across large teams saving time and money. The most awesome thing about it is that you can use the community version for free.

Cons

Nothing to dislike about Visual Studio. I have been developing applications for 7 years and never felt more comfortable than using Visual Studio.

App Development App

I started using visual code while developing in c# language. It is fast and convenient.

Pros

What I like most about Visual studio is that it has inbuilt environment and frameworks that can be installed with the App. I also like that there is direct integration with github

Cons

I found it kind of hard to install mostly because it requires fast internet as it is a bit heavy.

Reasons for switching to Microsoft Visual Studio

Visual studio allows intallation of the necessary frameworks

Powerful IDE but memory hungry

I love to write code using the Visual Studio Integrated development environment (IDE) software. Visual Studio (IDE) is powerful but with great power comes great responsibility. That is where the software lacks. Its memory hungry and slows down the system after long use. The latest release version of the software is 2019 which is what I have been using for now. However, the most stable version was in 2017. It hardly crashed on me or made my system go to its knees. There are few kinds of editions available for this software like Developer edition, Enterprise edition, etc. that one can subscribe to depending on the need. However, the subscription cost is more than average compared to other IDEs.

Pros

a) It's feature-rich and provides strong and seamless integrations with several other products from the Microsoft family. b) One can develop any kind of application written using any kind of technology through this IDE be it .Net, Java, JavaScript, etc. c) The software is easily extensible through extensions that help one integrate third-party components easily. d) It has an intelligent auto-complete sensor that provides accurate suggestions for the variable names you try to create, libraries you try to add into the current code class file, and even tells you all the dependencies of the class in a very easy to read format. e) There are individual wndows for each kind of tasks like examining the current project and solution, examining the tests written for the application, checking the variable watches, compiler output, errors, etc to name a few. f) The UI can be customized to one's heart's content. The windows can be arranged as per the needs, multiple windows can be grouped into tabs for easy navigation. g) It's even intelligent to suggest ways to improve the performance of the application that you are trying to create and how to make the project solution load faster.

Cons

a) The IDE takes a long time to load and once it's fully active with the project solution loaded, it really takes up a lot of RAM making even a good and powerful system slow down in the long run. b) The IDE crashes occasionally, especially when you do a lot of debugging using it. However, when the app restarts after the crash, it does give you the option to recover the last saved work. So that's handy. c) The menu is way too vast and it's easy to get lost in them trying to find out a certain option. Thankfully there is a global search box for the app to quickly type and find the option you are looking for. d) The updates are released quite frequently. Since each update is large (> 500MB), its takes a while to update the software thereby interrupting your work.

Father of Drag-n-Drop builder with slickest UI!!!

Microsoft Visual Studio is the upgradation of Visual Basic and other IDE to integrate into a big one. For newbie in coding, Visual basic provides the thoughts & experiences of a professional application developer. Simple & easy UI lets you learn & implement an idea into reality at first day at school. Inputs minimal writings & wares out maximum integrated system. What else do you need from a Drag-n-Drop revolution???

Pros

The Microsoft Visual Studio is the best Drag-n-Drop coding platform where a user can tweak ideas and algorithms into simpler and fastest way, make a trial on the go while building apps & software's, Handling database. When you don't have or have a basic coding idea, go for MVS. It will never disappoint you.

Cons

Integrating Plugins & libraries into MVS core system is a bit handful mastery that needs to be mastered for advanced complex stage. MVS decodes a bit slower than other platform. Cross platform support is a least. Multiple user session for remote work is a hard nut to crack in MVS.

Reasons for switching to Microsoft Visual Studio

Requires a load of less writing rather than to make a table & pubish!!!!
