PROS & CONS

What are the best aspects of this product?

Ever since I was at university, I have been using Code::Blocks. It is lightweight yet it is rich in features. Even if you ask other users, they will say that this is one of the best characteristics of this IDE. That is why I can use it though I have a low-spec computer without worrying about resource drain. It is free to use, too! This is because it is open-source and you can find it in multiple download sites. In line with that, it can work with different platforms and operating systems without issue. And though Code::Blocks is known for C and C++, it can actually be used for Java, Lisp, PHP, SQL, and more. Whichever language you are working with, you will find that the IDE is easy to use.

What aspects are problematic or could work better?

The compiler is problematic especially when you are working on a heavy and complex project. Developers of the IDE may also want to work on the autocomplete feature because, currently, it is not very helpful.

What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?

Programming is accelerated using Code::Blocks because of features like highlighting. This has helped me a lot in identifying different functions, text, and codes so that I can move around easily. What's more, it does not use much of your computing resources and since it is open source, it is free.
