This took me down memory lane! I've used TortoiseSVN and Eclipse. Good times. 😂

Your statement about trying to be a good programmer without reading and interacting with good, established code is so on point. I've come to this realization too. It's funny how simple it is, but it takes experience to get. Kind of like how Dorothy had to go on the whole adventure in Oz just to realize that there's no place like home. There's a big difference between knowing something and having truly internalized it.

Ah, a fellow venerable comrade in arms! 🤗 Salutations! 🙋‍♂️👋 Definitely! There's an entire universe of experience that exists between "knowing" and "understanding." Couldn't agree more! 👍
