If you find yourself with different needs in VSCode for different scenarios, like switching from your day-to-day coding setup to higher contrast and larger fonts for presenting at your local meetup (or recording screencasts), manually changing your configurations can be tedious and error prone. In this lesson, we'll use some CLI flags for VSCode to launch a new instance of VSCode that looks for your extensions and data in a non-default directory. Once configured, we'll setup an alias to launch your new configuration with a single word command so you don't need to use those CLI flags every time.

This is pretty useful, I've never heard about this feature before, now I will configure one profile for my personal projects and one for my work, thanks a lot!
