Some tools to enhance your development process.

VSCode is one of the most popular code editors in 2020 for developers. It is refined and optimized for building and debugging modern web and cloud applications. It’s also free and built on open source, with features like IntelliSense, built-in debugging and built-in Git commands. These are features that VSCode includes right out-of-the-box, and they’re just the tip of the iceberg…

Enter the rabbit hole of the Extension Marketplace

The extension marketplace is an area where you can browse and install thousands of extensions from different publishers, and in my opinion, the best feature of VSCode. There are extensions for anything — language extensions, formatters, color themes, intellisense support, emulators, debuggers, etc.

Here are a few awesome extensions that I uses on a daily basis (not language specific):
