Visual Studio Code – The Latest revolution

Visual Studio Code – a Powerful editing and debugging tool — Use it to boost your productivity with IntelliSense— smart code completions based on variable types, function definitions and imported modules. Easily navigate large code bases with features like Go To Definition and Find All References. Debug code in the editor using breakpoints, with a full call stack and an interactive console.

Streamline your work with JavaScript and Node.js
Auto-imports for JavaScript and TypeScript automatically add import statements for both local and npm dependencies. Take advantage of TypeScript’s type-checking features, even if you are using vanilla JavaScript.

Develop and debug serverless locally
Save time and resources by running and testing your event-driven apps locally using the exact same runtime that powers Azure Functions in the cloud, then deploying when you are ready, right from the code editor.

Support for hundreds of programming languages
Visual Studio Code supports almost every major programming language. Common web-based languages like JavaScript, TypeScript, CSS, and HTML ship in the box, and rich extensions from the Visual Studio marketplace provide completions, linting, debugging, and refactoring support for hundreds more.

Connect to developer services and resources
Visual Studio Code makes it easy to work with local and remote resources simultaneously. Develop and test a containerised app running against a local MongoDB database. Once it is ready, deploy your container to App Service and your database to Cosmos DB—all without leaving the code editor.

Visual Studio Code usage is rising rapidly! VS Code is now the editor chosen by the majority of engineers during programming interviews, and it appears to be rapidly taking market share from other top editors.

Pull requests are a critical collaboration tool for millions of developers every day, facilitating asynchronous code reviews and the distribution of knowledge among teams and open source communities. Because of this widespread utility and adoption, any advancement to the PR review workflow can have a significant impact on developer productivity, product quality and release velocity.
