It’s inevitable; whether at the office or at home, if I’m working on my computer and someone looks over my shoulder, they always ask the same thing…”What program is that?”

Visual Studio Code

The cool kids refer to it as VS Code.

I use it for everything I do, whether that’s tinkering with PowerShell, PHP, SQL, XML, VBS…you name it. It’s an awesome text editor too. Another good selling feature is that you can link it to GitHub or Azure DevOps to keep all your repositories in sync and track your changes.

You can use it to run all your PowerShell scripts, basically replacing ISE and you can switch between different versions of PowerShell if you’re feeling adventurous. Give it a shot if you haven’t already…did I mention it’s free?
