In this post I will share how to install VS Code (Microsoft Visual Studio Code) and work with GitHub repository.
Note: this post is a part of the series of posts about my experience using Ubuntu Desktop for software development.
For VS Code to work with GitHub repositories it requires Git installed on your machine. Follow these steps to Install and Configure Git and GitHub on Ubuntu Desktop.
Installing VS Code
To install VS Code (current version 1.4) visit VS Code for Linux Docs page and you will be prompted to download the package and open it in Software Install.
Hit OK and install the package. After that you will be presented with Getting Started page. And that’s all you need to do to install VS Code on Ubuntu Desktop.
