I decided to choose VSCode over Sublime text for my Systems Programming class in C. What I love about VSCode is its awesome ability to add extensions. Intellisense is a beautiful debugger, and Remote SSH allows me to login and make real-time changes in VSCode to files on my university server. This is an awesome alternative to going back and forth on pushing/pulling code and logging into servers in the terminal. Great choice for anyone interested in C programming!

Reviews of Visual Studio Code and Xcode
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.

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.

VS Code is a delightful editor, faster than Atom while offering a suite of tools tailored for web app development, such as an integrated Terminal, git, and Node.js debugger. Plus the extensions ecosystem is pretty great.

Even though React Native takes care of most of the heavy lifting, there are still some cases where we need xcode. These cases include app icon integration, mobile deployments, loading screens, ect...

Xcode is our primary development platform for iOS applications, with a very fully featured set of dev tools for the platform. For everything else, there's Sublime Text 3.
