Before Installing Software#
Before we download and install VSCode, Node.js and npm, let's ensure that you have a folder on your Desktop (or somewhere else on your computer) to can store projects you will work on.
I have created a
dev folder in my desktop. All my projects are stored there.
Visual Studio Code#
To start the installation, click https://code.visualstudio.com. The page you land on should look something like this (the button labelled "Download for Mac" will vary depending on the machine and operating system that you are using).
