Episode 3 – IDEs vs Editors

June 5th, 2008

Our third episode is about a topic near and dear to every developer: what editor to develop with and why it's far superior than the piece of crap someone else uses. Alex, Craig and Marc chat about everything from Eclipse/Textmate to vim/emacs. It's a sensitive topic for most, and we went into this podcast knowing we wouldn't convince each other to stray from our weapon of choice, but we managed to fill about 45 minutes discussing some of the finer points of editing and being productive.

I think this podcast - more so than the others - represents most accurately three developers sitting around drinking beer and talking shop. When we go out to the pub (sadly) this is exactly the type of conversation we (and if you've made it to the third episode, probably you too) have.
