Microsoft unveils Visual Studio Code for Windows, Mac, and Linux

visual studio

Something wonderful has happened in the Microsoft-centric developer world, Microsoft has created a development tool for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux. In the non-Microsoft world, that wouldn’t be such a remarkable thing. For Microsoft, this is a very big deal. The new product, Visual Studio Code, is a code-optimized editor with built-in support for dozens of different languages (JavaScript, C#, C++, PHP, Java, HTML, R, CSS, SQL, Markdown, TypeScript, LESS, SASS, JSON, XML, and Python are examples). It also has support for debugging, the version control tool Git and Microsoft Intellisense. It is a solid code editor, along the lines of something like you would expect to see in a standard open-source development tool. The surprise is it is from Microsoft.
