Visual Studio Code (VSCODE) is primary thought of as a IDE for WEB and desktop application development; however with the proper extensions and external tool chains it can also provide a powerful IDE for microcontroller based applications. In this session the presenter will discuss the VSCODE extensions and tool chain configurations need to needed to turn VSCODE in to a microcontroller IDE.
The presentation will include two demonstrations of the use of VSCODE to develop microcontroller based IOT sensor applications
1. A LoraWan rain gauge using C++ and the MBED libraries running on a Multi-Tech MDot
2. A Bluetooth temperature sensor using Micro Python and the PyCom libraries running on a FiPi
