The Future of IDEs
What tools will you be using to develop code ten years from now? JAXenter editor Hartmut Schlosser caught up with Tracy Miranda at JAX London 2017 to chat about the future of IDEs, the language server protocol, and more.
What tools will you be using to develop code ten years from now? The state of developer tooling is changing fast in thanks to the explosion of new languages, frameworks and technologies emerging. Integrated development environments that aim to be a one-stop-show for developers are struggling to keep pace with the changes. Does this mean that the days of full-blown IDEs like Eclipse and IDEA are numbered?
In an interview with JAXenter editor Hartmut Schlosser, Tracy Miranda explains why the explosion of new languages and frameworks has challenged IDE developers. She also goes over why she thinks the language server protocol is the way forward and why it’s an exciting time to be a part of the Eclipse community.
