A few years ago, I switched from Atom to VS Code, and I haven't looked back. VS Code works flawlessly, is super fast and due to its plugin architecture nicely extensible. But even though I use it for a while (years) now, I'm also pretty sure that I only use a tiny fraction of its overall functionality.
I just watched the video tutorial Code 0 to 20: Code navigation — An in-depth look at quickly and efficiently navigating your codebase. The video focuses on tips and tricks to navigate files in VS Code. While the topic of navigating files didn't get me excited at first, there are so many useful tricks in this video that I recommend having a look.
