Basics of Visual Studio Code

When you have to write code using your favourite language, you need a software. Your have three options here, use a primitive text editor like Notepad which provides no features whatsoever for a coder, or use a full-fledged IDE (Integrated Development Environment). Problem with IDE is; there is some learning curve plus they are not free most of the times. But there is a third option, use a text editor with just enough features that will make your life easier but will not make your wallet lighter.

There are multiple such text editors like, Notepad++, Komodo Edit, Brackets, Atom, Sublime Text and Visual Studio Code. Visual Studio Code is available for Windows, Linux and Mac.

In this course we will see how to setup and use Visual Studio Code.
