I’ve been doing a lot of investigation work for my day job recently, looking for and evaluating tools and services to see if they can be useful with the system we’re building. And the more time I spend doing this, the more I appreciate tools and services that offer a great developer experience.

It’s not the only criteria I used: something that doesn’t do what we need it to do will just not be considered. But when the decision comes down to two options that both do almost everything we need; the service with the better documentation and getting started guides will win out in the end.
