Get started with Particle Workbench

Particle Workbench is a robust, local Integrated Development Environment for firmware development and debugging. It provides all of the tools, libraries, and extensions you need for IoT development, and because Workbench built on Visual Studio Code, you get all the features available in the world’s most popular, cross-platform text editor.

In this video, you’ll learn how to use Particle Workbench as your local IDE for Particle projects. Particle Workbench is available for Windows, macOS and Linux, and provides all of the same capabilities as the Particle Web IDE, plus a number of other features that are perfect for Particle power users.
