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!
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.
