Tools, again


Computer Swedens developer columnist Tobias Fjälling the other day answered the question “What should a good development environment include?”. (Måsten i en bra utvecklingsmiljö - Computer Sweden).

Tobias list:

  1. Auto-complete
  2. Refactoring
  3. Navigationsupport
  4. Extendability
  5. Speed
  6. Debugger
  7. Code templates

I find this to be spot on what Ola wrote about the other day which I already quoted:

It’s interesting, many Java programmers talk so much about tools, but they never seem to think about their language as a tool.

Tobias seems to be a good guy, I am giving him the benefit of the doubt and assume that he forgot.
