Visual Studio Code is a browser-based code editor developed by Microsoft. Version 1.0 of this application was just released and over 2 million developers have downloaded it just in the past year. At the same time, there are over 500,000 developers who are using this application to create tools each month.

According to Microsoft, the Visual Studio Online was created for developers to create web applications using TypeScript and JavaScript. However, in the less than six months since the product was made available, the community has created over 1,000 extensions — quite impressive.
