Steps to Setup Your Development Environment

Step 1: Follow the Tutorial on the VS Code Web Site

This tutorial is pretty good. I tried it and was able to do this. You should only need to follow until NVM and Node are installed. We are not using Python.

Follow these three steps.

You can ignore the steps after that.

Step 2: Check that it is working

You should be able to open up VS Code and work in it.

Hopefully, you’re done and it’s installed. If not, let me know and we will work it out.
