We've covered Visual Studio Code in the Radar since 2015, but it isn't the only cross-platform .NET Core IDE kid on the block anymore. Recently, Rider, which is part of the IDEA platform developed by JetBrains, has gained adoption, especially by those used to the speed and dexterity provided by ReSharper, which drives the refactoring in Rider. Rider, however, does more than ReSharper to bring the full IDEA platform to .NET and increase developer productivity. Regardless of your preferred platform, it's worth exploring Rider as it currently has the productivity edge on Visual Studio Code. It's also great to see the ecosystem alive and well, as competition ensures these tools continue to improve.
