Just curious, Why was I introduced to atom when ill be using VS code? Just a little confusing
I’m not sure which course you’re referring to but you can probably use whatever editor you prefer; they can both be extended to fit your purpose.
I was introduced to Atom prior to starting codecademy. I found it much easier to use but it doesn’t offer the tools, and additional features that VS code does. I think codecademy was offering a choice and/or pointing to the fact that programming provides so many options and it’s part of the learning process to explore and learn whats available to us.
It’s good to be introduced to different editors. Some people love using Atom for its simplicity and ease of use. I used Atom initially and finally moved to VS Code and love it.
Same here. I went Atom → VSCode
There are Atom themes as well. So if you like the theming Atom does to your code, there is an exact copy (+ some additional) that you can use in VSCode. Plus a bunch of other fun themes.
