It brings the convenience of the Google Suite to programming, offering something that works more smoothly than anything found on Atom or Sublime Text

We use Yarn because it allows us to more simply manage our node_modules. It also simplifies commands and increases speed when installing modules. Our teams module download time was cut in half after switching from NPM to Yarn. We now require all employees to use Yarn (to prevent errors with package-lock.json and yarn.lock).

In addition to this it is actually quicker than AngularJS and Ionic in my experience.

We use G Suite because it allows us to store all of our documents and emails all in one place, with setup and sync far easier than Zoho Suite. Not only does it make it easier for us to collaborate but it allows us to have a separate place for all of our business related projects.

We use ES6 because it allows us to do more with less code. The arrow functions are the best, as well as classes and destructible variables.
