Join Reynald Adolphe for an in-depth discussion in this video A case for VS code, part of Learning Visual Studio Code.
- [Instructor] There's many reasons one might choose Visual Studio Code as a source code editor, but here are a few of my favorite reasons. One is that it's cross-platform. Not only could you use it on Windows, but you could also use it on OSX, and Linux. Another is that it is a very fast code editor. It's really quick to launch and is not very bloated at all. It also has a really great debugger, a quite advanced one that you normally would find on advanced IDE's, and that's one of the reasons why I mentioned that it hits that sweet spot between being a nice editor and a great IDE.
But it's referred to as code source editor because it is still lightweight and not bloated at all. But yet, it has great advanced features, such as a debugger. Another good feature that it has is its IntelliSense, which is just as effective as using IDE like Visual Studio Code. And you're also able to refact the code fairly easily. But before we go in and demonstrate some of these features, let's go ahead and talk about how to set things up in our environment.
In this course, learn the basics of Visual Studio Code. Industry expert Reynald Adolphe helps you get started with Visual Studio Code by showing how to use the command line and manage its layout, as well as how to handle multiple instances of the command line. He also demonstrates code refactoring, explains how to prepare for environments like ASP.NET, and shows how to create your first .NET app and Node app. Plus, Reynald covers keyboard shortcuts, and language features.
