Navigate your way around code by finding the definitions and implementations of different bits of code.

Debugging and Integrating with Git

Master the art of debugging with powerful  built in tools with VS Code and it's extensions. Then Integrate with Git, learn how to initialize a repo, clone, add, commit, and synchronize your code with that on your favorite version control platform.
