    If Scala and Spring are the gods gifts in terms of programming languages and opinionated-frameworks, then JetBrain's IntelliJ IDEA is the IDE equivalent.

    We use IntelliJ IDEA because it has great support for both Python and JS. In particular, its type-based code analyses, refactoring tools, and debugger are world class
