Learn to use VS Code like a pro.

Master VS Code will help you quickly improve your software development productivity and have more fun while coding.

This course is really great! I learned a bunch of things I didn't know I could use on VS Code. I look forward to learning more. Thanks!

Time to get down to business. In this module we'll do a full deep-dive on every feature of the editor and I'll share with you why they're useful, and when & where to use them. We will also learn how to navigate around the editor like a ninja (hint: without using the mouse!), and we'll learn some really advanced ways of using the editor. We'll also upgrade your VS Code by customizing the appearance, keybindings, default file operations, and applying a bunch of powerful tweaks to your settings.

This one is my favorite. If you're going to boost your coding speed... this is the module that would make it happen. In here, you'll gain some serious ninja-like code editing skills. You're going to learn how to slice & dice your code like a pro... all without touching your mouse. We'll explore some advanced editing features, keybindings, configure even more useful settings, and transcend the basic feature-set by installing some lesser-known extensions from the marketplace.

Get up-to-speed with the most powerful features, extensions, settings, keybindings, snippets, commands, appearance & interface customizations, and advanced workflows.

Just finished the course. I've worked with computers since the 70s and on the web since the mid-90s, and used VS Code for quite some time. From that perspective, I still found the course helpful. There were bits here and there that one doesn't discover on their own, which is why I keep checking out videos and tutorials on VS Code. Yours is the most complete from a beginner's perspective, and I'd recommend it to anyone who was just starting out with VS Code. You explain things clearly but without wasting a lot of words.
— Joel D Canfield

Is this OK for beginners too?

Yes. Master VS Code is valuable for both beginners and experienced devs alike. You will learn all of the basics to make sure we're on the same page before we get into the juicy advanced stuff.

How long will this take me?

~4 hours. Your time as a developer is precious. I've condensed the course as much as possible --> so you can master VS Code and still have time for your side project.

Who made this?

I'm Mike Tromba - the developer behind the Theme Studio for VS Code. I've been using VS Code for years and am excited to help you master the program.

Format of the course?

Densely-packed, HD video lessons. They follow a logical sequence so all you have to do is sit back, and relax. (Optional: grab a snack)

What if I don't like it?

I'm offering a 30 day money-back guarantee. If you don't like it, shoot me an email at [email protected]

How long will I have access?

Once you buy the course you'll have access forever. As I release updates, you'll get those as well.

Here's a video from the course:

It's one of my favorite extensions: TODO Tree

I have learned tons of amazing and interesting things such as (short commands, snippets, settings, extensions, and ...) I just wanted to say the "Master VS Code" is really fantastic! I wish I had this course at the same time as I started coding on Visual Studio Code." Well done! Thanks a lot.
