Now, 6 weeks later, VS Code for Windows on ARM is now available for the stable release.
Visual Studio Code (VS Code) is one of the most popular IDEs in the market. With the latest update, VS Code is now supported on Windows 10 on ARM devices. This includes Microsoft’s Surface Pro X, Samsung Galaxy Book S and others.
