Install Visual Studio Code#

Microsoft’s vscode is an open source integrated development environment (IDE). It’s called integrated because you can edit files, open a shell and install plugins to do anything a developer needs to do. Using vscode is optional in this course but it will give you the best experience while accessing opus.
