Visual Studio Code Introduction
Transcript from the "Introduction" Lesson
>> Mike North: So today we're gonna be talking about Visual Studio Code. And If you checked out the project, this is all you need today. There are new slides. One of the things that we're gonna look at as we start jumping into what this great editor can do is the fact that you can create fantastic documents with this as well that are built right into your code base.
[00:00:23] So if you open up the docs folder and look at the readme, that's right inside the docs folder, that is what we're looking at right now.
>> Mike North: So the way that we're gonna break this course down is we'll first do a bunch of stuff that involves using this editor, right?
[00:00:42] Making use of the way it operates out of the box. We're gonna look at five areas we'll deal with using for quick auto completions of like Monday and things, like creating HTML elements. We'll look at creating a markdown document, like what we're seeing right now. We'll jump into things like type checking, which you can do either with TypeScript.
[00:02:07] And change some settings, and change the way it looks and the way it operates, and then wrap up the day creating our own tasks and launch configurations, which essentially allow us to have shortcuts to start up different shell commands and different ways of booting our app up, putting environment variables in place so that it's sort of just a one click start my app process.
