    I liked the show today because you showcased one of my favorite IDE’s actually it’s the sibling of one of my favorite IDE’s. I use Web Storm which is very much like PHPStorm. I use it for JavaScript Development including Node. It’s one of the best editors for that IMO. I come from a .Net background where Visual Studio was my digs! But let me let you in on a dirty little secret about us IDE guys. We all have a copy of Sublime Text that we use when we want to do some prototyping or quick and easy development.
