Well tbh there are some really good SQL IDEs that will do all that, and enforce coding styles, but they seem to often be used to just make everything uppercase.

It's like they're monsters or something.

  • Because our IDEs do it that way.
  • Why do the IDEs do it that way?
  • Because we use to code that way.

The cycle of IDE monsters continues to consume us. 👹
