I was attending a tech talk the other day. The speaker was an experienced developer from Silicon Valley working at a fancy company. Mostly it was a very interesting and informative talk.
One of his thoughts make me think a lot and write this post.
"The best persons/developers I've ever met were using vim of emacs."
Whenever I tried to use vim or emacs I ended up thinking that instead of memorizing dozens of key combinations I could sharpen my skills as a developer.
So does vim or emacs really make you a better developer?
Does it mean that preferring IDEs makes you less curious about how technologies work?
