The rider is an IDE (integrated development environment) for the .NET platform that’s designed to be fast, unobtrusive, and customizable.

A lot has changed since Visual Studio was first developed. Technology has evolved, and so have the needs of developers. The rider was born from the idea of addressing these changes by creating a next-generation tool to meet their needs head-on.

Rider includes an unparalleled code analysis engine that checks your code for errors as you type and can fix many of them automatically.
