Wow! I am waiting for this course! And it is here. You are awesome! VS Code is my favourite code editor.

Thanks, I’m glad you liked it! :)

At the 3:10 mark, what did you mean when you said: “it only requires the keyboard, you don’t have to take your hands off the mouse”.

The command palette can be summoned with just a keyboard shortcut. From there you can type commands that would normally require you to point and click specific menu items with your mouse, which takes longer than quickly summoning the command palette and typing the command. This saves you a lot of time in the long run when you consider how frequently you perform specific actions.

Awesome course so far. I’d had long wanted to try VS Code.

I think at 3:10 you meant to say, ““it only requires the keyboard, you don’t have to put your hands ON the mouse”.

Oh yes, you’re right.

just a note, pylint requires AutoSave to be turned on (which is not a defauit settings). Else u will need to manually save the file to see pylint taking effect. also, need to take note of the pylint path especially if working in venv. took me a while to figure this out. would be good if u can include in future updates to the video

“Run code” produces this output but prints no numbers. If I use even a simple print(‘abcd’) line of code this still is not printed. Any ideas ??

[Running] python -u “c:\Users\Admin\Desktop\DEMO\Program.py”

[Done] exited with code=0 in 0.291 seconds

re: above problem. Very strange - I repeatedly got this (non-print) output when I selected ‘Run Code’ When I changed to “Run Python file in Terminal” it printed as expected. When I changed back to ‘Run code” it is now printing as expected too. Some funny first-time phenomenon or ?? Anyway, now no problem.
