Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Visual Studio Code

We have ported to Visual Studio code for our latest Angular development project. Initially - and still for older projects - we use Visual Studio for our Angular front end development. Visual Studio code is really a marked improvement when developing in Angular. It is incredibly fast and more lightweight than Visual Studio. Really cool to have a powershell terminal integrated right into the development environment which makes issuing Angular CLI commands all the much easier. Seamless integration with Git. The syntax highlighting is much improved as well. Visual Studio will still incorrectly flag false syntax errors; no such issue in VS Code that I have seen.
  • It has incredible speed for Angular development purposes - it makes Visual Studio seem clunky in comparison
  • Seamless Git integration
  • Very nice Angular syntax highlighting and recognition
  • Can be slow occasionally when loading large files
  • Has allowed for faster Angular development.
  • Reduced stress and mental fatigue on developers compared to using a clunkier product.
I have used it for Angular development purposes. If you are developing in Angular on Windows this is the development environment to go with.
