Using VS Code with a Legacy .NET Project
Use visual studio code with an older C# WebForms, ASP.NET, or MVC solution
Vince Salvino Aug. 9, 2018
I think one of the worst parts about working with a “legacy” codebase is often times the tooling. For years any .NET project had a tight ball-and-chain relationship with Visual Studio, SSMS, and many other multi-gigabyte Microsoft tooling dependencies. Wanting to modernize, Microsoft open-sourc...

Vince Salvino Oct. 30, 2016
Enter Mad Men 's 1960s New York office and you'll be greeted by clouds of smoke, fabulous wardrobes, and a secretary explaining that "the men who designed this typewriter made it easy enough for a woman to use". Needless to say, our office at CodeRed is quite a bit different (although fun fact...
