Are you tired of your stubby fingers hitting the wrong keys when you code? Are you tired of pressing the delete key again and again? Are you tired of pesky spelling mistakes and buggy source? Well, perhaps Redmond's IntelliCode, first teased around this time last year, may just be what you need.

The machine-learning-backed software is, essentially, like an autocorrect or autofill tool for code in Visual Studio, and is now kinda generally available. As you type, it recommends code to use next in popup boxes to help you complete and format your source. Some people swear by it, some of us find this kind of hand-holding nauseating.


Text editor shoved out the door. Is it ready for prime time?

Personally don't use Visual Studio ... but some of the features described remind me of Notepadd ++ which can be annoying at times. :)

(The auto complete stuff).

Reviews are desired!

I do use Visual Studio Code, however, I am old-school, and I don't like all these assistances, and always disabled such feature. I like to write "my" code "myself" :)

But it's sure that it can be helpful, and speed up some developments.
