Microsoft announces Visual Studio Code for Mac at BUILD conference


Right now, Microsoft’s BUILD conference is taking place, where the company outlines several different areas that it hopes to help developers.

One of those areas is a new application for Mac users, called Visual Studio Code. The company has just unveiled the new code editor for Mac, outlining that it will work cross-platform, but it runs natively on Mac for those that prefer Apple’s hardware.

Microsoft has proclaimed the new software as an “code optimized editor,” and it supports GIT, debugging and Intellisense. For developers that use GitHub, the new Studio Code also integrates into that service as well.

With the new Studio Code, developers will be able to develop apps for each of the platforms it supports, including Windows, OS X and Linux.

As revealed by the official Twitter account, the new Studio Code will be made available to download for those interested once the keynote winds down:

If you’re a developer, what do you think of this new code editor?
