A friend that is studying Computer Science in Peru told me that in the beginning, they're forcing them to use the notepad so they don't keep the bad habit when they transition to IDE's, I love VS Code but I got to admit this a true issue.
For a CS degree, I completely agree this is the best course of action. I still carry a number of bad IDE habits from my early study years.
But I personally don't think VS Code meets the IDE qualification. It sits in the middle ground as a very code-friendly text editor.
That's why is one of my personal favorites!
I think they are totally right, I keep saying it in my school 😂
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
