  • C# Extensions: This extension let's you create C# files, like classes and interfaces also some keyboard shortcuts like creating.  This one seems to be no longer in development for a long time, but it works fine.

  • NuGet Package Manager: This extension let's us install new NuGet packages which we will need from time to time.

To install these extensions you just need to click the marketplace button, search for the extension and click on the "Install" button on the extension page.

code --install-extension jchannon.csharpextensions-1.3.1.vsix
