Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Visual Studio Code

I can speak for my team. We use [Microsoft Visual Studio Code] to develop [a] variety of applications. Its a feature rich ide with support for plugins, themes, voice chats and collaboration tools as well. Basically, all of our web application development work is done in [Microsoft Visual Studio Code]. It has great integration with github which is also a staple requirement of any developer today.

I am pretty sure it is also used throughout the organization but I can speak for myself and the team only.
  • Github integration
  • Plugin support
  • Integration with all command line tools
  • Collaboration features
  • Debugging tools
  • Visually attractive
  • A little bit heavy on system but so are other ide.
  • Java support is a bit clunky
  • Open source
  • Free
  • Feature rich
  • Well supported and updated
  • Increased developer productivity
  • Lesser dependency on specific tools such as Github desktop since it integrates well with github
  • Better collaboration due to collaboration plugins such as voice chat and remote vsc access.

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?


Did implementation of Microsoft Visual Studio Code go as expected?


Would you buy Microsoft Visual Studio Code again?


For ANY development work, just go with [Microsoft Visual Studio Code]. It supports syntax highlighting for all languages, has great debugging tools, has tight integration with github. For example, you don't have to use ides for specific languages or purpose such as pycharm or webstorm. [Microsoft Visual Studio Code] has tons of plugins to cater development in a specific programing language or domain.

I think all this is great for any developer.
