Do you turn Edit and Continue OFF?

Archived Reason: This is old and outdated advice.

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.
