Secret ingredients to quality software


Do you turn Edit and Continue OFF?

Last updated by Tiago Araujo on 30 Aug 2013 08:34 pm (over 7 years ago) See History

With VS2013, you get the long awaited 64 bit edit and continue, and it is turned on by default. Edit and Continue is great when you need to make a quick change to executing code. However, it has its downsides too:

  • Web Development - Kills IISExpress when you stop
  • Can lead to bad development practices (trying to debug instead of doing RED, GREEN, REFACTOR)

This is why we recommend that it is turned OFF by default.
