Visual Studio Code is a free and open source multi-platform software application that is used by programmers of all levels. Its name is often shortened to VS Code.

Note that "Visual Studio Code" is an editor while "Visual Studio" is an IDE. Both are Microsoft products.

VS Code features include debugging, syntax highlighting, intelligent code completion, snippets and code refactoring for many computer languages.

It also features an integrated terminal and embedded Git version control.

It is made with the Electron Framework (which is developed and maintained by GitHub)
