Microsoft announces Visual Studio Code for Mac and Ubuntu, a lightweight, code-based editor

At Microsoft’s Build 2015 conference, the software giant announced Visual Studio Code for Mac and Ubuntu. A new creation tool to make it even easier for developers to a manage their app code regardless of what platform they are using.

Visual Studio Code is not the full version of Visual Studio, so it doesn’t have all the features and capabilities developers have come to expect from Visual Studio. Instead, it is a code optimized editor, with Intellisense and debugging support. It is designed to be small, fast, and lightweight, so it should work well on a wide range of PCs.

Visual Studio Code will be available for free, and developers will be able to download it later on today for the Mac, and Ubuntu. Stay tuned for more info on Visual Studio Code and other Microsoft technologies as the Build keynote progresses.
