We all love our tools. And many of us think that we use the BEST tools and that our tools are more effective and better than the tools our co-workers are using. But, when you work in a team, the team often is way more effective if everybody uses:

  • Exactly the same tool chain
    • E.g. exactly the same version of the same IDE, etc.
  • Exactly the same code conventions and code style
  • Exactly the same process of contributing code
    • E.g. cleanup the code using the team's code conventions and styling before checking code in.

After a while, collaboration of team members will automatically improve.
