Review ofVisual Studio CodeVisual Studio Code

Visual Studio Code takes writing code to the next level.

There is a great community out there, it is open source, it is lightning fast, and it just works out of the box.

It has a TON of useful extensions that can make the software do just about anything that you can imagine. It has GIT support directly within the software that doesn't require any extra plugins or configuration.

I love how responsive VS Code is, and the out-of-the-box intelligent code completion it provides for many JavaScript libraries and frameworks has been a great boost to my productivity. We also have it to thank for pioneering the language server protocol, which allows the development of code intelligence tools for any editor or IDE.

Performant, flexible editor/IDE. My main programming languages (JavaScript, TypeScript and C#) have good support in it. Another language I plan to use more in the future, Go, has okay support right now which is improving.

Also, as a developer who prefers using Linux as a workstation OS, I appreciate it being cross-platform.

We use HAProxy to load balance between our webservers. It balances TCP between the machines round robin and leaves everything else to Node.js, leaving the connections open with a reasonably long time to live to support WebSockets and re-use of a TCP connection for AJAX polling.

Increasingly we are using VS Code more and more. It is very handy for working on Javascript, Powershell scrips, TSQL, markdown etc. Often use it's integrated terminals for spinning up APIs, running off tests and running various scripts.

HAProxy manages internal and origin load balancing using KeepaliveD. Two small servers host the entire site, never moving about 15% load even during the largest load spikes.

We use HAProxy to balance traffic at various points in our stack, includgin nginx nodes on different physical machines, and api nodes on the backend.

I use HAproxy primarily for application routing and SSL termination. I also use its logs and statistics to visualize incoming traffic in Kibana.

We use HAProxy to load balance web requests for our web application, but also for some internal load balancing of microservices.
