Azure Pipeline YAML support on VSCode

A major problem when moving from the graphic editing of Azure Pipeline builds to YAML has been the difficulty in knowing the options available, and of course making typos.

Microsoft have just released a VSCode extension to help address this problem – it is called Azure Pipelines

I have yet to give it a really good workout, but first impressions are good.

It does not remove the need for good documentation of task options, there is a need for my script to generate YAML documentation from a task.json file, but anything extra to ease editing helps.
