Visual Studio Code - Making Cool even cooler
Topic: Visual Studio Code, the open source code editor from Microsoft exploded in popularity since its first release on November 18th, 2015. Its success is largely owed to the fact that it is designed to be extendable. Open source developers can build their own debuggers, language services, and other tools to fill in gaps not covered in the base package. In this session we're going to cover how to get started on creating your own Visual Studio Code extension through the process of publishing it on the Visual Studio Marketplace. We'll go through some TypeScript code samples which will be made available on GitHub. About the Speaker: Sean Normoyle is a full-stack software developer with Financial Partners. He has a background in building single-page apps with JavaScript, ASP.NET, WCF, and SQL Server but lately has been more involved with the company's movement to the cloud, such as transforming legacy system functionality to the Salesforce platform. He likes working with Node.js, the MEAN stack, and making games for web browsers as a hobby. Sean is also enthusiastic about TypeScript, Nintendo, and playing guitar. More on him and his work at
