Visual Studio Code

Visual Studio Code is a free, relatively new (late 2016), open source, cross platform tool for editing code. I like the Git integration. It doesn’t right out of the box support SQL, but it’s easy to add it as shown below.

It’s really simple. Click the icon for Extensions, enter sql for your filter, then find the mssql extension and click Install.

Figure 1. Installing the Visual Studio Code extension for Microsoft SQL Server.

The extension comes with extensive documentation, links, and animated tutorials. Click mssql in the list of extensions.

Figure 2. Click mssql to load the documentation.

This is the direct link to the mssql extension tutorial, the same one that is the first link in the screen capture above. You should use Microsoft’s documentation. I’m just making you aware that it exists. One think I want to point out is what happens when you hold down the Ctrl key and then press K. The K is that start of a two key sequence called a chord.

Figure 3. Ctrl+K is the first of a two key sequence called a chord. Notice that is says “Waiting for second key of chord…”

Pressing M completes the chord to display the language mode selection menu. I selected SQL. Notice SQL appears in the bottom right corner of the screen capture. It all sounds good to me, music to my ears.

My only point here is to make you aware of a new tool to help you get your work done from any platform.
