Visual Studio Code YouTube Series

In some spare time I’ve recently had, I took to YouTube to attempt a video series that looks into the basics of Visual Studio Code. So far I’ve produced three episodes that I’m satisfied with and actually had a bit of fun talking about Microsoft’s newest code editor.

I’ve embedded the three episodes below for your viewing pleasure. Have a watch and if you like what you see, click the Subscribe button or let me know what you think. I’m definitely interested in doing more videos for YouTube in the near future, so let me know what you’d like me to talk about.
