Facebook adopts Visual Studio Code internally through Microsoft partnership
Facebook has collaborated with Microsoft to further improve the latter’s Visual Studio Code’s remote development extensions to allow remote development at scale with the editor.
As reported by Thurrott, Microsoft improved the Visual Studio Code’s remote development experience by using Facebook’s feedback and input, allowing the social media giant to start out its own custom solution.
Visual Studio Code runs on macOS, Windows, and Linux, and has a robust and well-defined extension API that enables Facebook to continue building the important capabilities required for the large-scale development that is done at the company.
Facebook engineers have installed the development tool on their laptops and most of the development is done directly on individually reserved development servers that live within the company centres.
In September, Microsoft released a free new font called Cascadia which was designed to be aesthetically pleasing for coders. With Microsoft debuting its new Windows Terminal command-line experience during the company’s Build conference this year, the technology giant decided that developers should also be treated to a new font. While it was created with the new Windows Terminal in mind, the font is also designed to be used with other apps and IDEs such as Visual Studio.
