Technically speaking, these are not brand new sections. Previously, we had 2 sections that already covered VS Code and Atom: Text Editor Basics and Text Editor Tips. Each tutorial in those sections covered how to perform a certain action in both VS Code and Atom. However, we felt that now was a good time to split those tutorials up so that VS Code users could focus on their content and Atom users could focus on their own content.
The hope is that now we can add more tutorials on VS Code with this new structure. Acccording to the Stack Overflow 2019 Developer Survey, VS Code is the most popular developer tool, and it's much more popular than Atom. Because of those facts, we feel that we should focus more on VS Code for now (although we may add some new Atom tutorials here and there).
One of our goals with Simple Dev is to teach developers how to code locally on their own devices, so these are very important sections to us. Not every course spends time explaining how to use a text editor. We pride ourselves in teaching coders how to code from the very beginning, starting with how to use a text editor.
