There is no doubt that the shortcut/extensions contained within your favorite code editor allows for faster code production.

This got me thinking, is this the best thing for a young developer like myself? What if there was an apocalypse and we needed to build a site to inform the rest of the world but only had notepad, would a young dev know what to do without, VSCODE, Visual Studio, ATOM etc?
Learning code is technical and you will not be able to remember it all, however, I am of the belief that just like learning the fundamentals of a language, young devs should learn the fundamentals without the help of all these fancy tools.
