  • ROI can be said as neutral because eventually, we have to switch to another text editor because of many limitations of Atom for large code.
  • In starting stage of the project, everything was fine and things were happening as expected
  • Overall it has been a great experience using Atom in my organization but many challenges were faced so that's something Atom should work on.

  • As mentioned before, Atom is highly effective for bulk text editing. This has proven useful when moving information quickly from one format to another (e.g., free-form word document into more structured formats like CSV).
  • Atom is only particularly useful in the hands of someone with a high degree of technology proficiency; as a result its impact has been limited at my organization due to varied levels of technical skill.
  • Atom has been useful for basic coding and scripting in Javascript (most recently, building an OpenStreetMap visualization).

  • Atom has made writing C++ code more enjoyable.
  • Atom has taken a decent amount of time to configure with plugins, but in my opinion, it was worth it.
  • Atom has helped us reach our business objectives of writing quality C++ code and working on the JNI layer for Android apps which have a native code component.

  • Atom's multi-cursor plugin helps me do repetitive coding tasks very efficiently.
  • Atom's configuration is easily duplicated and can be copied over a machine to machine so new engineers can have the same Atom installation as everyone else, making environment setup and tool standardization a breeze.

  • The tool we use when we need quick fixes. Allows fast, reliable scripting to fix urgent problems in our applications.
  • When applications grow from 5-10 files to 100's, they need to be migrated to a heavier-duty IDE. This can be cumbersome and quite annoying, but is necessary to maintain code integrity on such a large scale (since it cannot be done with the limited default toolset of Atom).

  • Atom hasn't really affected the business objectives at our institution. It's an option, but one of many to edit text.
  • The real ROI comes from staff being comfortable working in the way they see fit. The standardization happens outside of the choice of text editor (IDE/Version Control/DevOps).
  • I could easily not use Atom and have no difficulty completing my work.
