My Ching was developed using the Eiffel programming language and the EiffelStudio development environment. Finnian prefers to develop with Eiffel because it is exceptionally well designed.

The resulting code always looks elegant making it much easier to read, understand and maintain. EiffelStudio makes it very easy to navigate every aspect of the code.
