I gave a talk about Visual Studio Code in my company yesterday. Among my colleagues I am the only one who uses VSCode and I think there is no reason for web developers to use WebStorm.
I don't think it makes sense to host your own database when you can use cloud solutions.
Don't get me wrong, I really like Docker and Kubernetes, but I think for some projects it is okay to deploy them on bare metal.
1 - Totally agree.
2 - Price, I can have a couple of powerful dedicated servers for 150€ per month and make a solid database setup with replication and backups in there that can handle thousands of connections per minute while the same on AWS would cost me around 900€ per month.
3 - Again cost. The recovery time on a crash and the ability to quickly move(a couple of minutes) everything to another machine are priceless.
Better code completion, search and code navigation are worth it.
And it is multiple times faster!
