I second this. There is just something about it. With VSCode, I always felt like I was in an abusive relationship where I had to do all the work. The words seem bigger and complex, it requires plugins to do almost anything any other IDE does. Webstorm though, it's constantly trying to explain itself with the option to turn off the training wheels. It's weird too because I learned more from the ide than the tutorials I was reading and that's not how I typically learn.

I think that the most major thing that JetBrains IDEs have that teaches their users is inspections, simply because you're constantly being corrected and improved, up to the point where you don't need the IDE to correct you anymore.
