Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Visual Studio Code

I work as a C# developer at my present company. I am the only C#/.NET developer in our company and I regularly use Microsoft Visual Studio Code for application development. It allows me to open one or more directories, and then save in work-spaces from where I can re-access for future use.
  • Fast
  • Cross-platform
  • Support for a variety of programming languages
  • Embedded git isn't powerful enough
  • Slow launch time
  • Bad auto import
  • Saves time.
  • Debugging made easier.
  • Provides Python support which helps me work with Python as well.
Overall, compared to all other open source text editors like Sublime Text, Vim, etc, I've noticed that the Visual Studio Code has been updated regularly which makes it work more efficiently and resolves any bugs on a continuous basis. I feel like VS Code has the speed like Sublime Text and power like WebStorm.
Always updates VS Code frequently and the code editor has been evolving over time.

Do you think Microsoft Visual Studio Code delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Microsoft Visual Studio Code's feature set?


Did Microsoft Visual Studio Code live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Microsoft Visual Studio Code go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Microsoft Visual Studio Code again?


Microsoft Visual Studio Code is an extremely fast source code editor that can be helpful for hundreds of programming languages. There are many plug-ins that could be used to extend its functionality. I've used both Sublime Text and Microsoft Visual Studio Code, but sometimes I've noticed that the launch of Visual Studio Code is extremely slow compared to the latter.
