Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Visual Studio Code

Microsoft visual studio code is used by developers in our organization. It is mainly used for java scripts apps like Angular, Reactive. This IDE is open source and provides rich features. Syntax highlighting, auto-completion, and code refactoring is easy. Debug is so simple with this IDE. Also, it provides so many extensions. It's extremely fast.
  • Performance is quite good. It's fast.
  • Debug feature is awesome. Easy to add debug points, no need to add manual console print.
  • Auto-completion and syntax highlighting help a lot.
  • There are so many extensions available like html hint, js, docker, es lint, angular, yaml. Good thing is these extensions do not cause slowness.
  • This IDE can be used for most of the programming language, so there is one tool for all developers across the organization.
  • The search feature can be enhanced. I use eclipse for Java, so I believe search features can be enhanced like Eclipse.
  • Microsoft Visual Studio Code helped in quick development. It's open source so no investment.
  • Microsoft Visual Studio Code is fast so helped developers in delivering quality code.
  • Microsoft Visual Studio Code supports almost all programming languages so enables the organization to use one IDE across the organization. Support and knowledge sharing is easy.
I used Atom before using Visual Studio Code. Atom is slow, has higher memory usage and crashes sometimes.
Also, Visual Studio Code has thousands of extensions in comparison to Atom. Atom is not suitable for slow or old computers.
Microsoft Visual Studio Code is well suited for most of the programming languages. It's fast, easy to use, lightweight. Extensions are helpful. Github integration is awesome. Autocomplete helps developers a lot. Plugins support is good.
