The AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio Code, an open source plug-in that makes it easier to create, step-through debug, build, and deploy applications, is now Generally Available. The toolkit supports .NET, node.js and Python applications and provides deep support for serverless applications at launch with other AWS services planned for the future. The toolkit had previously been in developer preview. 

The AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio Code provides an integrated experience for developing serverless applications. You can get started fast with built-in project templates that leverage the AWS Serverless Application Model (AWS SAM) to define and configure resources. The toolkit also includes an integrated experience for step-through debugging of serverless applications with the AWS SAM CLI and makes it easy to deploy your applications from the IDE.
