How to start with VS Code?

Hi campers!

I’d like to start using VS Code but I have no Idea where to start. My goal is to start creating the same projects I do on CodePen, but in VS Code.

I’d like to start running React apps, but create-react-app (https://create-react-app.dev/) is really confusing. I don’t know what a npm is, neither an npx. I watch youtube videos and follow the steps, but it doesn’t work!

Is there any tutorial for complete beginners to start?

you can watch traversy media’s react todo app video to get started
