Git with VS Code for Mac: Part 2 – Installing Git and VS Code

In my previous post, I discussed how to install Microsoft PowerShell and VMware PowerCLI on MacOS. This is the second part of my three-part blog series on configuring Git with VS Code for MacOS. In this post, I’ll cover how to download and install both Git and Microsoft Visual Studio Code.

We looked through a few different configurations and compared settings, but nothing was really jumping out at us.
