Did you know about a list of videos that clearly depict tips and tricks that VSCode is able to do that nobody ever bothered to tell you about? Well if you didn't, you do now...
The battle of the IDEs is well known and till recently the choice in programming language would also direct the choice in the IDE to do development too. But with the advent of the Language Server Protocol, which separates the language from the editor, the lines have been blurred because any IDE can nowdays support any given language.
With many heavyweight options such as IntelliJ and VScode freely available, the competition is becoming fiercer than ever and inflicting collateral damage. One recent victim is the Komodo IDE which was finally let go to the community as an open source product and now its fate lies in the OSS community's hands. And we know that OSS developers are not to be underestimated. Who knows, the community driven version might be even better.
