Getting Started With VS Code for Node.js Development

As developers, there’s one type of tool that we all use to express our intents into a language that systems can interpret and act on: the text editor.
Text editors can be as in-depth or as simple as you want them to be. I personally use VS Code to write both code and prose. I’ve personally tweaked VS Code to be streamlined to my taste for writing apps in Node.js and wanted to share some of the Node.js tooling (outside of N|Solid and Certified Modules) that I use.
