Developer's Creed
This is my text editor. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My text editor is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
My text editor, without me, is useless. Without my text editor, I am useless. I must use my text editor efficiently.
I must code faster than my approaching deadline which is trying to kill me. I must debug before it arrives. I will...
My text editor and I know that what counts in this project is not the lines of code we write, the automated testing, nor the code linters we use.
We know that it is the features that count. We will deploy...
My text editor is agile, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its plug-ins, its menus and its key bindings.
I will keep my text editor clean and ready, even as I am not clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will...
Before God, I swear this creed. My text editor and I are the defenders of my code. We are the masters of our dev environment. We are the saviors of my life.
