carpet or hardwwod installed first?

we are in the middle of a complete gut and renovation on our house. we are a few weeks away from flooring and we are doing hardwood throughout and then carpet in the bedrooms. my questions is do we install the hardwood first of or the carpet first? the hardwood will go down the hallway and will butt up to the carpet at each bedroom door. i am just trying to plan the proper sequence.
Thank you for your help!

I've always thought it was best to install the hardwood first.

I would rather install carpet to hardwood than wood to carpet so I'd put the wood in first as well.

I like the rule of thumb, "hard to soft".
