It depends on what you want to accomplish overall. The good news is there are a lot of similarities between languages. The first language is always the hardest. The second might be a challenge but after that it's just learning what is different between a new language and what is the same (and a lot is the same!).
It's a "simple" text editor like like Sublime but brought to us by the GitHub team and it is highly configurable (making it much more complex, thus the "" around simple :laughing: ). It isn't a full IDE per se but can perform many of the same functions as an IDE.
I like the simplicity. A lot of the complex IDEs can be way too much - I never really took advantage of all of the things that Eclipse or Netbeans could do (or it was too complex to figure out), and it was always a bit overwhelming. Atom seems like a happy medium.
I like it because it's configurable to my needs. If I'm doing heavy webdev stuff, I have a myriad of linter options, code beautifiers, autocomplete tools, pigment (this is a must have package), emmet, live-server... you name it!
I have what is probabl y a stupid question. I don't understand or how to use github. I only know some basic html so far and need to review what I've learned anyway. Also taking a cert. in MySQL on Courcera and math for data science.
A few people got a sneak peek :p but to keep everyone updated, I plan on starting a monthly workshop soon! I just need to resolve a location as our current meeting space only holds 10 and I hope to get more than 10 on occasion :laughing:
