Diving into Visual Studio Code with Nathan Westfall

Tyler Technologies 11 Cornell Rd , Latham, NY 12110 (map)

Due to Winter Storm Watch for sleet and freezing rain issued by the National Weather Service, this meeting is being pushed back one week. We hope that you can still attend.

Visual Studio is great, but when you’re working with small projects or something that isn’t c#, it’s a little overkill. VSCode is a great solution to bridge the gap between notepad++ or another text editor and a full IDE. Supporting windows, mac and linux and have more extensions that you can imagine, it’s impossible to find a work flow it can’t improve.

This demo will dive into VSCode in what it can and can’t do along with how you can move some projects from Visual Studio to VSCode while improving your workflow.

6:00 pm - Doors open and refreshments will be served

6:30 pm - Session start, meetup announcements

7:30 pm - Session wrap-up, closing comments

The doors to Tyler Technologies will be unlocked from 5:45 pm to 7:05 pm.
