I found the Kanban board to be the most useful for my needs.

In Microsoft Azure DevOps, you have a one shop to get everything.

The one thing that really stands out to me is how you can filter and how you can do your reporting and filter the tasks and everything by user.

The nice thing about Visual Studio Code is that it's a modular design. So if you're working on a strange language that has a different syntax, you can just get a plugin that'll format your code for you based on the language it's in.

Most developers and project managers choose the Microsoft tools to begin with because of familiarity, and these new tools are almost an extension of the tools you're already familiar with. There's a lot of knowledge transfer, which helps, rather than bringing in a new product line.

I like the fact that there is built-in Power BI. Both are Microsoft tools. So, you can incorporate dashboard capabilities.

It's very user-friendly, and the documentation is good. The most valuable feature is backlog item creation, where we pick features and other things. The burndown chart created for projects to be maintained by the development teams is also useful.

The automated bill feature is most valuable. As with most software developers, I can build code on my machine, but if one of my coworkers can't build the same code on theirs, there are always issues in trying to track it down. The automated bill process makes it a lot easier to track down where the issues are and find out what bugs aren't being included for whatever reason.

All features are good. Pipelines feature is great, and Boards and Artifacts features are also really good.

It is really good at what it does. It is very comprehensive, and it has some really great aspects to it. It is very easy. It is probably one of the easiest to use DevOps tools in the industry, and it is well integrated.
