General Development "I feel like writing about the Go programming language (or 'Golang') today, so instead today's topic is computer stuff. For the record, the language I've programmed the most in has been Python, so that’s the perspective I'm analyzing it from." Some good and bad things about Go.

No one here has said IDEs are useless.

Except that people jab at IDEs all the time. They won't go so far as to say they are useless, but they talk about how you don't need them and you can do everything just fine in Emacs, which is patently false.

There hasn't been any of that here, though. The closest that there's been was my question on "Why do you think Go needs an IDE?" which was followed by my next comment in which I said "IDEs can be important". Which I would think would make it clear that my stand point is "IDEs are useful, but try not to design a language that requires them."
