    "This is not for beginners, so I was at a disadvantage here. It took me a while to get started and figure out what to do. I think there’s a fairly wide range of options, and lots of additional features that can be used here, but you need experience to figure out what you need, so it can seem a bit daunting. "

    "Codiad is the only program I use for software creation anymore. It's incredibly easy to use, and the fact that it allows for real time editing by multiple sources means that my team and I can really get things done in a hurry. After a little set up time, I can't see myself going back to my old IDE."
