Setting up a development environment

March 2, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


While many argue that the best way to learn to code is to simply start coding, having the right set of tools makes coding much more enjoyable and productive. In this workshop, we explore the differences between development environments and basic text editors, and we will set up a simple development environment using Visual Studio Code. Moreover, this workshop introduces VSCode extensions, such as Git, SSH, and Docker, and gives you sources to learn more about them.

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
1. Recognize the role and purpose of a development environment and editor in computer programming
2. Become familiar with the Visual Studio Code interface and tools
3. Employ Extensions to connect Visual Studio Code with other development tools, such as SSH, Git, and Docker

This workshop is part of the Core Skills series.
