The 10 Coolest DevOps Tools Of 2021 (So Far)

Wade Tyler Millward

CRN takes a look at a sampling of some of the coolest DevOps tools so far this year.

Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code (VSCode)

Six years after its initial release, Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code (or VSCode) continues to find ways to innovate.

At the Build conference earlier this year, Scott Guthrie, Microsoft executive vice president of the Microsoft Cloud and AI Group, spotlighted a new version of Visual Studio 2019 with productivity enhancements for .NET and C++ developers and a new version of Visual Studio called Visual Studio 2022, the first 64-bit native version of Visual Studio.

The tool has also received more integrations with other Microsoft products, including Azure Logic Apps, a cloud-based platform for creating and running automated workflows that integrate apps, data, services and systems.

Eric Thiel, director of developer experience at Cisco DevNet, told CRN that VSCode has been used in a variety of tasks from colleagues responsible for developer documentation to engineers writing code.

“When discussing tools with my team, VSCode always ranks at the top of the list across the team,” Eric Thiel, Director of Developer Experience at Cisco DevNet, told CRN. “The range of plugins for each programming language, for remote editing and text style assessment make it a universally helpful tool.”
