I like Udemy courses, they often go on sale for <10 USD. Stephen Grider is excellent. Maximillian Schwarzmuller is super detailed and also excellent. Both have many JS/TS courses.

For VS code I like:

Prettier - for setting formatting rules (might be more useful when you work with other people) maybe use Beautify if you are not working with other people.
Git Graph - for viewing git history,
Bracket Pair Colorizer - for readability
Duplicate - lets you duplicate files easily and change name
Diff - lets you compare to files in diff format (green/red) on changes.


Depending on what language/framework you use some of the simple snippet extensions can be good. Most of my other extensions are graphql / react specific.

I notice if certain/too many extensions can cause VS code to lag a bit so i like to test each extension as I install them
