VS Code
VS Code is a very powerful editor with countless great features and 3rd party extensions to do basically anything

We introduced how to install and use VS Code in the lesson Using VS Code.

In there I told you to install the software from https://code.visualstudio.com and how to open a folder to edit an HTML file.

That lesson just scratched the surface, and here I want to dive deeper into a lot of the different things that VS Code can do.

VS Code is a super powerful code editor.

The editor is open source, and there’s no payment required to use it.

It’s fast. And very flexible, it adapts to your way of working. And I’ll show you how to customize it to suit any kind of programming activity, even writing (I’m writing this article in VS Code)

There are thousands of extensions, some official, and some made by the community.

It’s always improving, as Microsoft releases an update every month.
