Visual Studio Code Now supports ARM

Visual Studio Code 1.50Which means it supports Raspberry Pi. Of course I’ve been using it thanks to the code.headmelted.com version but it’s convenient now that both 32-bit and 64-bit ARM are available to download from the official site. As always, make sure you pick the .deb version either ARM for the 32-bit Raspberry Pi OS or ARM 64 if you have the 64-bit.

Apparently there is also a new C/C++ extension from Microsoft that I shall have to check out as well.

Also this means you can do remote code development. The idea is that you run Visual Studio Code on your PC/Mac whatever and connect to a program running on your PI (over WifI or a Network cable) using SSH. See the VS Code documentation for remote development.
