Digging into Visual Studio Code

Episode #216, published Fri, Jun 14, 2019, recorded Wed, May 15, 2019

One of the questions I often ask at the end of the show is "When you write some Python code, what editor do you use?" Increasingly the most common answer is Visual Studio Code. Despite it's Windows only namesake, Visual Studio Code is cross-platform and has been gaining a lot of traction.

I was at the Microsoft BUILD conference immediately after PyCon this May. There I got the chance to sit down with Dan Taylor from the VS Code team to discuss what they have been up to with VS Code and Python.
