re: The IDE - The beginner's trap ! VIEW POST


I'm definitely an advocate for learning to program without an IDE. Learning to write, compile/run, commit, and debug without an IDE provides a solid foundation for continued mastery.

That said, once you know what you're doing, the safeguards a decent IDE offers help considerably reduce coding errors and style inconsistencies, while increasing efficiency.
