Let's face it, development has gotten easier throughout the past few years. Gone are the days where you'd have to write all of your code through terminal on your favorite modded vim or emacs editor. Every language almost has an IDE built for it, and at times, we've grown to live with it.

Thankfully, with the help of some tools crafted for such issues, we can reduce those bottlenecks and continue developing at a fast pace.

I'm sure they feel the same for you.

It sounds kind of silly, but it's amazing how much power words can have on people. As humans, we live and feed upon sayings, trying to conform to what we've been taught.
