What do you do? I'm a lead software developer at Brown University.
When did you start using BBEdit? I started using BBEdit in 1994 when it was at version 3.0.
What do you make? How does BBEdit help? My work requires me to edit files on a variety of servers, and BBEdit allows me to do that directly from my Mac, so that I have all the advantages of BBEdit even in other environments. When I'm writing code, I find many features in BBEdit valuable. The feature set is so extensive that I often use BBEdit for small projects instead of using an IDE.
What's your favorite project that BBEdit has helped bring to life? When I'm not actually compiling code, I use BBEdit to work on my tn3270 program for OS X. I use many features, but I find how BBEdit does file comparisons and BBEdit's search/replace capabilities especially useful.
Which feature is your favorite? It's difficult to pick a favorite feature, but I use "Open from FTP/SFTP Server" extensively. While it's a small thing, I also have to mention that the ability to include the new line character in search/replace is extremely valuable. Overall, what I like best about BBEdit is the wide range of features it offers, and how they all have been implemented with careful attention to making them truly useful.
