VS Code has so many extensions and stuff, that this is an evoloving list of useful things I’ve found for it.

Extensions

By using easy-to-understand views, SandDance helps you find insights about your data, which in turn help you tell stories supported by data, build cases based on evidence, test hypotheses, dig deeper into surface explanations, support decisions for purchases, or relate data into a wider, real world context.
