Discussion on: Why I switched from Atom to Visual Studio Code

I tried to get an old Java project up and running in VSCode and found myself having wasted a good hour before giving up and switching back to my IDE.

I can't imagine VSCode beating any of JetBrains' IDEs.

For Java and C# (both .NET and .NET core) the IDEs are definitely better (I do wish I could use it for Java but the support and features are not there yet). VS Code is the best option you have if you want to develop .NET core on Linux (because it's much lighter than JetBrains Ryder).

JavaScript, Python, scripting languages and DevOps software scripts (Docker, Ansible, Terraform, etc.) is where VS Code truly shines.
