Install a program to study coding
Code Editor③ (VScode④)
① Browser: Generic term for application for searching and browsing Internet contents based on the World Wide Web, such as HTML documents, pictures, and multimedia files. ② Chrome : Google이 만든 웹 브라우저의 이름
③ Code editor: A program designed to edit the source code of computer programs by programmers
④ VScode: Abbreviation for Visual Studio Code, a source code editor developed by Microsoft for Microsoft Windows, macOS, and Linux.
- Installing the browser (Installing Chrome)
First, let’s install “Browser” to access the Internet site.
If you are using Windows, the official browser ‘Internet Explore’ is installed by default. But as I said before, we will install ‘Chrome’ separately for more efficient coding study. Chrome has the advantage of having great performance, and above all, a very convenient tool for developers.
Go to the link https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/ and click the blue ‘Download Chrome’ button shown in the image above.
After a while, when installation is complete, click the Chrome icon on the desktop to check if it runs normally.
- Installing the code editor
Now let’s install ‘Code Editor’.
‘Code editor’ is a program in which some functions are added to ‘Notepad’ provided by Windows. You can code in Notepad, but it can be a little inconvenient because you cannot correct it when you write the wrong sentence and there are no other convenient additional functions. The code editor includes Sublime Text⑤, Atom⑥, and VScode⑦. Of these, you can freely select one and use it. Here, the most recent version, and users will install the most ‘VScode’.
⑤ Sublime Text: A proprietary cross-platform source code editor written for the Python API.
⑥ Atom: Free and open source OS X, Linux, Windows documentation and source code editor.
⑦ VScode: No. 1 code editor as of 2018, https://triplebyte.com/blog/editor-report-the-rise-of-visual-studio-code
Go to the link https://code.visualstudio.com/, click the green download button to download and run the installation file.
When you run the installation file, the window that appears appears in order by selecting ‘Next> I accept the agreement> Next> Next> Next> Next’ to complete the installation!
Today, I installed a browser and a code editor to help you study coding effectively. In the next week’s lecture, we will learn coding in earnest by practicing using these two programs.
