How to install Visual Studio code on Ubuntu

Recently I presented a Webinar on ASP.NET Core on Linux. Here I have displayed how we can use Visual Studio Code a Free Open Source Editor from Microsoft to develop application. One of frequently ask question was How I can install Visual Studio Code on Linux. Since lots of People are using Ubuntu as Development Machine I thought it will be a good idea to write a blog post about how to install Visual Studio code on Linux(Ubuntu Machine).

So first thing we need to do it open a terminal in Ubuntu and then we need to type following command one by one.
curl https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc | gpg --dearmor > microsoft.gpg
Install-Visual-Studio-Code-Ubuntu

Then you need to run the following command to move gpg file download via Curl to etc/apt folder.
sudo mv microsoft.gpg /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/microsoft.gpg
Install-Visual-Studio-Code-Ubuntu2-move-folder

Now, You need to run following command.
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://packages.microsoft.com/repos/vscode stable main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/vscode.list'
package-cache-insert-vscode-ubuntu-linux

After that, you need to run Apt-get Command to update package cache and Apt-get install command to install visual studio code.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install code
pakcage-install-visual-studio-code

That’s it. You are done with installing Visual Studio Code. You can find more information about different Linux flavors at following  link on Visual Studio code.
