It is ok to do all the code into VS Code?

I already set it up with the auto complete tags, auto-save and all. If it's ok, where I can download the files that teachers use?

Hey again Federico! :)

I use VS Code to follow along with the courses myself! This seems to work for me just fine. What I've done is launch the workspace for the appropriate video, followed by copying/pasting the content of workspace into VS Code so that they are identical. From there, it's just a matter of working within VS Code as you wish!

In a nutshell -- just copy the contents from the respective workspace into VS Code and follow along that way. That's what I have been doing.

Someone with more experience in this area might have a better suggestion, although I am simply sharing what has worked for me!

Have fun! :)

You can also go to the File in workspaces and Download Workspace so you don't have to individually copy paste each page and folder. Hope this helps!

You're so right! What a dummy, I didn't think about to copy/paste, I'll do it! I was doing a udemy course so I have already set the VS code and it is more easy and fast, don't have to save all the time.

Thanks again man :)

Ha, you are certainly not a dummy :P There may even be a better solution that I'm unaware of, but yeah, if you prefer VS Code then all the power to you! I actually just started using VS Code last month and am also a fan!

Haha thanks man! If you didn't do it yet, check into Google about the best extensions for VS Code, it has a lot of tricks to use :)
