Caveat emptor: I have no idea what stirred this up, or what the debate is. But I think there are different development methods and tools, and some are better than others. As engineers, we should strive to find out what works best, and while there is obviously going to be a lot of confirmation bias, I think analysis and discussion of the pros and cons of different tools and methods is healthy.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
