As developers, we strive to be quick and productive. We love to automate things so we spend less time on daunting, manual work and more time on solving interesting problems.

In this lesson we're going to learn how to use emmet (which is built into VSCode) to quickly write HTML/JSX and how to use prettier (which we're going to install from extensions tab) to automatically format it so we may work faster and be more productive.

In the video I didn't mention that (sorry!) but you might want to enable:

"emmet.triggerExpansionOnTab": true,

in settings.json in order to make emmet work when pressing TAB
