    • Go because it's easy and simple, facilitates collaboration , and also it's fast, scalable, powerful.
    • Visual Studio Code because it has one of the most sophisticated Go language support plugins.
    • Vim because it's Vim
    • Git because it's Git
    • Docker and Docker Compose because it's quick and easy to have reproducible builds/tests with them
    • @Archlinux (wtf it's not here?!) because Docker for Mac/Win is a disaster for the human's central nervous system, and Arch is the coolest Linux distro so far

    I use Visual Studio Code because it is great out of the box, it has an integrated terminal, and support for quite a few languages. As a developer who works with TypeScript, their tooling is amazing in the VSCode Marketplace. The best part about VSCode is that can be as lightweight or as decked out as you want it to be. Even though a lot of other IDE's are Electron apps just like VSCode I find that VSCode boots up the fastest. I've tried other IDE's and I always find myself coming back to VSCode.

    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.

    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.
