Do you use Visual Studio Code? Do you think you know it pretty well? Let’s find out.

Visual Studio Code is catching fire with JavaScript developers because it can do a LOT. From productivity tips to debugging Docker containers on the fly and even hacking the editor itself, we’ll assemble the best features and extensions for VS Code that nobody ever bothered to tell you about.

This is your favorite text editor like you’ve never seen it before.
