VS Code is pretty good
Its integrated terminal, global search, and extension marketplace are fantastic.
But here’s my beef: It’s loaded with distractions and takes a ton of configuration to feel good.
That’s where this course comes in.
We’re going to make VS Code awesome, then teach you how to be insanely productive in it.
Manuals are boooorinng
This is not about everything VS Code CAN do, that’s what the docs are for.
Instead of showing you everything VS Code is capable of, we’ll zoom in on the things that matter to a working developer.
Here we go.
Hide All The Crap
First, we’re going to hide all the distracting crap everywhere. We want our editor to feel more like an artist’s canvas than a pilot’s cockpit.
Ditch the mouse
Now that we’ve hidden everything, we’ll establish some easy to remember keybindings. Keyboard shortcuts should be logical and easy to remember. None of this hieroglyphics
Make it look gooood
Aesthetics matter. You spend most of your workday inside your editor. You should LOVE the way it looks.
Write Code Faster
You write code all day, might as well be good at it. We’ll reinforce basics like duplicating/deleting lines of code and travel all the way to advanced multi-cursor techniques. We’ll make awesome keybindings for each operation as we go of course.

It’s All About The Bindings
All of this is going to be paired with logical, easily memorizable keybindings. No more odd combinations of modifier keys, just logical shortcuts you could almost guess. I’ve poured SOOO much thought into my keybindings and I CAN’T wait to share them with you.
