    This is pretty awesome. Looks like a pretty fun place to work.

    Also mind blowing that these folks are elderly or close to that now.

      Visual studio code is amazing. There are tons of reasons here, but even without them I think the consistent performance in both Windows and Mac says a lot.

      1. 10

        Consistent performance on Windows, Mac, AND LINUX! I’ve been using it for Go Development on arch for a while and it’s extremely good. To the point where I’m thinking of switching from Sublime Text entirely. I was really resistant to trying it (M$) but it’s probably the nicest GUI Editor/semi-IDE-thing that I’ve used.

          Does it have good vim emulation yet? Haven’t tried it as my main editor in a few months now.

          1. 4

            It’s not perfect (my comparison is evil-mode in Emacs which is close to perfect) but it’s good enough. Basic editing/movement is great, but it runs into trouble with things like multiple-cursor support (it tries to implement block-visual mode with multiple cursors and sometimes gets into a…situation).

            1. 5

              heretical statement: i prefer evil-mode in Emacs to Vim.

              1. 2

                Oh, me too, and maybe I should have mentioned I do miss Spacemacs terribly in VS Code. But most people wouldn’t file that under “vim emulation”. :) [Edit: and also it occurs to me that macros run really, really slow, so I switch back to Emacs for complex editing.]

            2. 3

              It has “fine” vim emulation, but not good enough to feel natural when I’m pairing with my coworker who uses it.

              1. 2

                It has some okay keystroke emulation, but I miss a lot of the more niche features of vim, like page marks, bufdo, and good macros. I realize it’s all of the stuff that makes vim “vim” to me, and not just modal editing.
