Why I Switched From Visual Studio Code To JetBrains WebStorm

In my current project, I met a developer who was really confused that I was using an editor and not an IDE for the development of large business applications. First, I did not really consider his concerns but meanwhile, I understand him.

In this blog post, I want to tell you why I now mainly use WebStorm instead of VS Code for development.

Preamble

This is a very hot topic and I know this will cause some controversy. In the following article, I talk about my experience using WebStorm in a large Angular application which was mainly developed in VS Code.

How Apple’s deal with Amazon screwed over small recycling businesses

“Amazon needs brands. We know that consumers search on brands, and so Amazon will go to pretty drastic lengths to get access to those [products],” says Sucharita Kodali, a Forrester analyst specializing in e-commerce and consumer trends. Since the early 2000s, Amazon’s primary way to acquire well-known brands was to let third-party merchants resell them, Kodali notes. “The brands have noticed, and the brands want to control more of their presence online. And because Amazon is such a big presence in e-commerce, if you want to control your brand presence online, you have to control what it looks like on Amazon.” That inevitably means cutting deals and shutting out what, in Apple’s eyes, are rogue merchants.
