Chapter 1 – Download and Install Visual Studio Code

This article explains how to set up Visual Studio Code for Python Development. Visual Studio Code also known as VS Code, which is free and open-source code editors developed by Microsoft. It is mostly used by software developers of all the top programming languages, as it is having lots of cool features, flexibility and other integrated development tools like debugging, IntelliSense, etc. Visual Studio Code is available to be downloaded for all platforms like Windows, Linux, and macOS.

First of all search on google for VS code download. There are so many results appear but from those you have to open official website od VS code https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/

As you open website https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/  there you can see download packages for all operating systems windows, Linux and Mac then download it based on the OS you are using.

I am having Window, So I am going to show how to install the VS code on Windows. Also, I am using Windows as the development environment for setting up the python.

Then click on download option i.e.  https://code.visualstudio.com/download and select the windows option of 64 bit to install the software. And then save the set-up file for installation. After that install it by clicking next, next…and finish as usual. (follow below procedure)

Once Visual Studio Code is up and running, the next thing that we would need to set up is a python runtime environment. Again, we can install python on all three operating systems like Windows, Linux, and macOS. Click on https://www.python.org/downloads/ and download latest release version. after that same process like VS code installation you have to install python by clicking next, next…and finish.
