For a long time, Visual Studio has been my primary development tool of choice. Prior to that, I was a scrappy coder doing mostly old-school Visual Basic (think VB 6) work. I found Visual Studio Code about the same time I started dabbling in Python and a few other functional programming languages. Now, I use Visual Studio Code for most of my Python coding efforts. It's the primary tool used at Insytes for data analytics functions. We are currently using Visual Studio Code and Python to develop novel statistical methods for analyzing certain key business functions for small and mid-sized distributors (mostly of durable goods).
