"NDepend Review "

What do you like best?

I was absolutely blown away by the amount of analytics produced by this tool. While I never thought this was possible, NDepend generates a dashbord for your project's code.The amount of code analysis is absolutely limitless as to what you can dream up to make your project's code have exceptional standards.The amount of code analysis is absolutely limitless as to what you can dream up to make your project's code have exceptional standards.

What do you dislike?

NDepend is definitely not for the newbie software developer. Some developers may not even know where to start with this particular tool. But let me just say that the amount of expertise that went into this product is absolutely staggering.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With almost 200 existing code metrics already available, you can extend it further with the CQLINQ syntax to expand the library even further. The CQLINQ language along with the Rule Explorer Panel and Edition Panel alone is worth the price of this product.

"Superb plugin for my Visual Studio"

What do you like best?

Good amount online help resources available. This makes it easy to use and write better code. Also importantly I could build standards for the code for my team and could use the same for the subsequent projects.

What do you dislike?

It can be less useful to individual developers. Most of the individual developers are already experienced and licensing could become expensive. That is mostly because they are probably working on a few projects that they already know very well. Thus they can develop design insight by themselves and will not use code review features. Also for management understanding the code metrics could get difficult
