    I have watched and read much material on C# Support in Visual Studio Code. But I am having problems creating C# dotnet VS Code apps with additional classes,DLLs,etc. A video like Dustin Campbell's May 23, 2018 channel 9 presentation would be very helpful. Learning curve time in both VS and VS Code seriously impact productivity. And I, like many, can not devote full time to these activities, but enthusiastically jump in when requirements occur. Once I understand a good VS or VS Code approach, requirements are quickly accomplished. Material to help part-time users will be greatly appreciated. And I am sure there are many. Thank you.
