Tool Mastery


Whilst working with a new client which had some green developers, it struck me that they only knew about 20% (totally arbitrary for this example) of the tools features they were using on a daily basis. For example, when asking them if they preferred merge vs rebase, I was often met with blank stares. Similarly, when using their editor I would often find them manually searching and replacing renamed variables, rather than using the built-in feature of the editor.
