The Visual Studio Magazine 2019 Reader's Choice Awards Are Out
There's no better source of guidance about tool selection than the opinions of fellow developers.
Visual Studio Magazine readers for the 25th year have weighed in with feedback about products they love best for the 2019 Reader's Choice Awards.
While their favorite Visual Studio IDE always takes its rightful place front and center in these surveys, readers once again shared what other tools they find most helpful in their day-to-day coding.
Across a record 40 categories, more than 400 products were voted on, with the top three entrants in each category receiving Gold, Silver and Bronze badges, respectively.
Readers voted on solutions ranging from individual component collections to full-fledged frameworks in categories that span the gamut from security solutions and Web hosting to developer training and -- new this year -- cutting-edge AI-related solutions.
We also asked a series of open-ended questions, touching on categories such as the most highly valued development tool, data-centric development tool, mobile dev solution and more.
Go here to get the downloadable PDF of the 2019 Reader's Choice Awards, and see if your favorite products and services are on the list, as well as those products you might want to try based on the votes of your peers. There's no better source of guidance about tool selection than the opinions of fellow developers.
