Each film manufacturer fine tunes their developers for their films and vice versa. So when first starting out with a new film you should really read what the manufacturer says.
Agree that manufacturer recommendations is a great place to start.

Don't agree regarding Rodinal, but that difference of opinion just shows that often recommendations are based on personal preference.
