Interview: Open sourcing of IntelliJ IDEA - Part 4
JAXenter: What goals are you planning to achieve with the open source strategy? Where would you like to be in one year and where in two years?
Roman Strobl: As I mentioned earlier, our main goal is to grow the number of users of IntelliJ IDEA and increase our market share. We want to be seen as a strong player in the open source IDE world. We are already perceived as innovators in the IDE space, but not everyone was able to experience these innovations due to the price barrier. Thanks to our open source edition we hope many developers will be able to experience IDEA and this will help us further improve the market awareness about IntelliJ IDEA and other products we create. Finally we want to grow the ecosystem around our platform as well as increase community participation.
