As a beginner programmer, I hear you when it comes to relying on an IDE to finish your code. There are times when I space on small shite sometimes and that kills me. But I often feel now that I need to get certain projects done and can't screw around wasting time hunting and pecking for my code. So I need a little more free time on my hands before I finally go off IDE. Soon...
A thoughtful piece, Thanks

You're not wrong and your analogies are good. I'll still keep my IDE for my own reasons. :)
