JetBrains (maker of IntelliJ IDEA) recently released the initial version of Rider - their open source .NET/.NET Core IDE. That's right: version 1 is out, after a few years of development. But is it any good?
.NET Core 2.0 Preview 1 was released at MS Build 2017. Now that it's been out for a week, I'll take a look back at the information in the announcement, and I'll take a look at the benefits and drawbacks to using it.
Jet Brains (creators of ReSharper and IntelliJ) announced development of a cross platform C# IDE, based on their widely successful Java IDE: IntelliJ. There's an early access build available , but is it any good?
Microsoft provide a few IDEs (VS Code being cross platform too - which is a first), but which should you use for .NET Core development and how do you choose? What are the official tooling options available when you are forced to choose between them?
