Mastering the tooling
by Roy Revelt · posted on · a thought
Don’t know if you noticed but many extraordinary developers mastered their code editors to such level, that they started teaching productivity, editor plugins and, heck, in some cases, writing code editors.
The first two quick examples that pop to my mind:
- Wes Bos (online educator) has once published a Sublime Text Power User book
- Steve Francia (creator of Hugo the static site generator and many famous Golang libraries) has his Vim
It does not matter what code editor you use but it’s imperative to master all keyboard shortcuts and tricks of the one you picked.
