(Bit of a cop out article today. Sorry)
I installed and tried out Visual Studio Code yesterday, to see what it was like in comparison to Atom.
I must admit, I went into it but expecting much. I assumed it would be the same or worse than what I was already used to, and with a learning curve to boot.
How wrong was I! It's great. I really like it. It does have a lot of similarities, but given how new it is it has a lot less rough edges already. It's not perfect, but what is?
I'd recommend you try it and see for yourself.
