What are the best VS Code extensions for AWS?

Hi everyone!

I am learning more and more about what I can do within VS Code and the CLI when it comes to AWS (rather than going in via the web interface).

I thought I would share the VS Code extensions that I have recently installed and started to play with, I am not quite sure what I am doing with some of them yet but they all look super interesting!

Let me know if there are any no-brainer VS Code extensions for AWS that I have missed, would love to hear what you are using and why.
