Worried about what your IDE (Interactive Development Environment) or text editor says about you as a developer? Look no further. In this article, we will examine the impact of various IDEs and text editors to determine exactly what they say about you.
- Visual Studio Code: You are a developer.
- Visual Studio Professional: You are a developer with RAM to spare.
- Eclipse: You are a developer building Java apps (or possibly something else).
- Notepad++: You are a developer.
- Vi/Vim: You are a developer.
- Android Studio: You are a developer building Android apps.
- Sublime Text: You are a developer.
- Atom: You are still a developer.
Have I made my point? Your identity as a developer is not defined by the tools you use to create.
Do you write code in one of the listed IDEs? Congrats, you're a developer.
Do you write code in an IDE or text editor I didn't mention? Congrats, you're a developer.
Wait.. you don't even write code but you still create applications? Awesome! You're a developer.
The last thing we need in tech is more gatekeeping. Let's be cool.
