Installing Visual Studio Code on Ubuntu 16.04 using dpkg

Yesterday I posted a note about manually installing the Atom editor on Ubuntu 16.04 using dpkg. A friend recommended that I try out Visual Studio Code for Python development, and I was pleased to discover that it is available in a .deb package for install on Linux. I used the same command to install the VS Code .deb:

foo@manchoo:~/Downloads$ sudo dpkg -i code_1.4.0-1470329130_amd64.deb 
[sudo] password for foo:
