Video: Windows Subsystem for Linux and Golang Environment with Visual Studio Code

Recently I have been playing with Golang and I found that there few packages that do not work with windows. So for that most of people are using VirtualBox and then installing Linux on that But Actually, you don’t need to do that as now you already have windows Linux subsystem which provides you a complete Linux Environment in your windows environment itself.

To educate, this I have created a video for the same. You can find that video below.



Here in this video, You can see that I have installed Ubuntu Linux subsystem.

What is Linux Subsystem:

Windows Linux Subsystem is a compatibility layer developed by Microsoft and Linux distributions for running Linux Environment natively on Windows 10. It was introduced with the Anniversary update.
