Visual Studio Code setup—Part 1

I have this feeling that if you set off the year right, everything will become a lot smoother. So, this first video lesson is really important; I want to show you how to setup Visual Studio Code. **What the heck is Visual Studio Code?!** Visual Studio Code is a text editor like Atom and Sublime Text. I recently switched over from Sublime Text to Visual Studio Code and I'm loving every minute of it. Even Vitaly, the founder of Smashing Magazine switched over to Visual Studio Code! Look!! :D **Why learn to setup Visual Studio Code?** Imagine if you can get your text editor to tell you if you've made an error and help you format your code properly, how wonderful would it me? The good news is, this is possible! That's why getting a great text editor setup like is half the battle won when you're coding. Visual Studio Code excels here because you get a lot out of the box with Visual Studio Code without much configuration. I want to help you kick off 2018 properly by setting up Visual Studio Code through a three-part video tutorial. This is the first part.

Thanks for making this video. I'm a loyal Atom user but this looks really impressive.

editorIndentGuide.background seems to work officially to change indent guide color opacity. Maybe it can replace guides. But I haven't figure out how to use it. Does anyone know?

Thanks Zell, I was asked recently at work to use Visual Code, and after being a SublimeText user for over 5+ years I was nervous. However, the experience has been very good, and I am really pleased with it. Likely it will be my go-to IDE now. I had it all set up but your video showed me something I didn't know about - Guides. Worth mentioning here that the user will have to install the font Fira Code on their machine, which can be found for free with a search. Thanks again!

I should add on Fonts, consider Source Code Pro (also free if you do a search), I personally prefer over Fira Code but that's my preference. :-)

Thanks, great video, I have been going back and forth between VS Code and Atom, now that I can make VS Code look like Atom I think it will be my new home!

Once the extensions and stuff are in, it'll really be your new home :)
