Boiler plates are nowadays the most essential tool for a programmer to develop any program. Let's have a scenario that there is a company and they are providing internship and for every intern selection they are providing offer letter to their every new intern. So, the offer letter pattern should be the same for all the interns. Only a few types of things would differ such as date, name, and so on, i.e. the personal details of that intern would be different. So, we can say that the sample rough structure of the offer letter is boiler plate. With little modification this offer letter is ready. In the same way, VS Code has a code snippet or boiler plate that helps programmers to write their code quickly. For example For Loop Snippets, Html Basic Snippets etc. So, this thing is great for programmers to increase their developing speed.

We can also add our own dynamic boiler plate that we think will be used multiple times throughout the program to save time on writing code.
