When I was a kid, I used Dreamweaver and my mother would watch me doing things and she used to say "Oh, my dear there are lots of icons and buttons!!! How do you manage that? How do you know which one is for what purpose? You are really brilliant."

And now I use Atom IDE and she says "This looks very easy. Technology has evolved so much that you don't have to click so many buttons and just write simple lines, just as simple as writing letters and the software does the rest of the things. These softwares have done a brilliant job."

Seriously the technology has changed (and my mother too) !!!

    I do find Dreamweaver to be more difficult than just writing out the lines 😂 but that might just be because I hate Dreamweaver 😂

    Wait until you switch to vim. Then you'll be like:

    - Look ma, no mouse!

    My parents never really appreciated my childhood dev carrier :(
    And I created pretty cool RPGs in Game Maker.

    Also worked with Dreamweaver too! :)
    And Microsoft Frontpage... But that was when I was really small.

    I actually first learned how to build websites from my programmer dad when I was 8, but he taught me with HomeSite, so I've been hard-coding HTML pretty much from the start. Then I took a shitty web design class in middle school where you had to use some obscure WYSIWYG editor on mac OS 9 and it was so frustrating! It's awesome that your mom gets it.

    She has a point though. With code, it's easier to figure out what happens. The Dreamweaver interface would drive me crazy.
