Tech Tutorial: Learning React.js for Single-Page Web Applications – Episode 03: Visual Studio Code

There are a lot of Integrated Development Environments or IDE’s out there. These are editors for code, you could compare them to what Microsoft Word is to a word document. IDE’s provide not only the ability to edit code but also:

  • View an entire project and its associated files
  • Manage files within a project
  • Manage the execution environment in which your code runs locally to test it
  • Debugging code
  • Integration with source code management utilities like Git
  • .. and a lot more

All of these abilities make IDE’s preferable over simple text editors. In this video, we will introduce you to Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code, which is a free IDE Microsoft has provided developers. It is a great way to become familiar with IDE’s and to get started developing software.


Personal Recommendation (unpaid)
Programming and software development are awesome! Being that you are learning along with me, there is a really good chance you can make this a career. Based on my own life experience, let me suggest to you that you go get a Computer Science degree from Neumont College of Computer Science and kick your life into hyper-drive.
