Visual Studio Code, also known as VSCode, is now one of the most popular code editors in the world. Once configured with a few useful extensions, this cross-platform code editor is often considered to be like an IDE by many developers for developing in PHP frameworks like Zend Framework, Symfony, Yii, Laravel, CakePHP, popular Content Management Systems (CMS) like Drupal, Magento, and WordPress, Learning Management Systems (LMS) like Moodle and others. Don't let the free price tag of this professional class developer tool fool you.
