    Review ofVisual Studio CodeVisual Studio Code

    Visual Studio Code takes writing code to the next level.

    There is a great community out there, it is open source, it is lightning fast, and it just works out of the box.

    It has a TON of useful extensions that can make the software do just about anything that you can imagine. It has GIT support directly within the software that doesn't require any extra plugins or configuration.

    I love how responsive VS Code is, and the out-of-the-box intelligent code completion it provides for many JavaScript libraries and frameworks has been a great boost to my productivity. We also have it to thank for pioneering the language server protocol, which allows the development of code intelligence tools for any editor or IDE.

    Performant, flexible editor/IDE. My main programming languages (JavaScript, TypeScript and C#) have good support in it. Another language I plan to use more in the future, Go, has okay support right now which is improving.

    Also, as a developer who prefers using Linux as a workstation OS, I appreciate it being cross-platform.

    Increasingly we are using VS Code more and more. It is very handy for working on Javascript, Powershell scrips, TSQL, markdown etc. Often use it's integrated terminals for spinning up APIs, running off tests and running various scripts.
