    IntelliJ IDEA is our polyglot IDE of choice. We use it esentially for all programming and coding aswell as some basic database management and planning. IntelliJ IDEA has proven to be a reliable companion in developing our various software.

    eclipse 를 쓰면서 이만하면 충분한거 아닌가 왜 돈내고 IDE를 사서 쓰지 했는데, 진짜 돈 값을 한다. 정말 자동화 완성 기능은 엄청난것 같다. 단축키로 이소스 저소스 넘어 다니고 이창 저창 뜨우는게 편하다. 그리고 프레임워크 서포트 기능이 장말 강력하다. 그리고 가장 맘에 드는 점은 터미널이 기본 창에 있는 점이 좋다. CMD 가 싫으면 설정을 통해 다른 터미널 프로그램으로 바꿀수 있다.

    Even though React Native takes care of most of the heavy lifting, there are still some cases where we need xcode. These cases include app icon integration, mobile deployments, loading screens, ect...

    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.

    Words don't do it justice.

    PyCharm is our preferred IDE for python apps, for all its simple awesomeness in writing code, as well as the ease with which you can run a Django shell, a web server, or run tests.

    Xcode is our primary development platform for iOS applications, with a very fully featured set of dev tools for the platform. For everything else, there's Sublime Text 3.

    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

    처음 파이썬을 배웠을 때 pycharm으로 배웠습니다. 지금은 빔을 사용하기 때문에 사용하진 않습니다.
