The Connected IDE: A communication-first approach drives collaboration (Part 2)

In Part 1 of this series we touched on the evolution of IDE from a personal, standalone tool to a connected and networked hub of all things code. We explained how connecting your IDE to your teammates’ simplifies communication and collaboration with two specific use cases: Discussing code in general, and performing code reviews right in your IDE, eliminating the context switching and improving knowledge sharing. In this post we will expand this to additional use cases and show how the Connected IDE is the most important step towards team collaboration in a world where we are all remote developers.
