<p>In the world of software version control, there are many passionate and differing opinions. Some developers and leaders are adamant about the use of version control software, but others seem to care little of the safety and continuity of their ColdFusion applications.

I recently switched from using Sublime to Atom to VS Code. While they all look similar, how they deal with version control is quite different. Sublime does not seem to have built in version control Atom puts Git integration down the bottom status bar. It is easy to see, but also easy to miss. VS Code puts it very conspicuously on the side bar and puts badge on the icon to remind you of the current check state. VS Code does not even have a built in print capability, but it does have Git. I don't see this as a sign were things are heading, it is an indication of where development already is ~~~~~ OT but maybe not. Programming is hard. I have had to send hours sometimes day to fix something that turned out to be quite small to actually fix. Checking in code is the result of a sometime long and painful process. A check in is nothing compared to the work required to get something ready to check in.
