SelfNote: VSCode setup

Recently I started to use the Azure cloud machine to do my coding work. I can still do my coding in my laptop using full Visual Studio but an Azure VM with VSCode will be much convenient. Low tech but works. :)

The following VSCode setup script helps me set up a new machine:

  1. open PowerShell 
  2. copy extension names to the clipboard (yes, Ctrl+C)
  3. run get-clipboard | % { code --install-extension $_ }

hi, I am hoping to write a blog post about an Azure Linux F# VS Code setup for Exercism or getting started with Bolero. Are you willing to help me out in some way? Would you be willing to do a review of a draft and share your opinion? I'm still kind of new to F#, Azure, and VS Code. I followed you on twitter in case you want to DM there and I'm adding a link to my blog if you prefer to comment on blogger.
