Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week, we took a closer look at two new JEPs, developer productivity during quarantine, and how to stay connected during these times. And also, if you have been wondering how exactly Eclipse Theia differs from Visual Studio Code, we’ve got you covered.
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.
Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week, we took a look at the most popular programming languages in April, interviewed the creators of Julia, and learned about remote pair programming. We also found out why AIOps is here to stay.
Some of the greatest achievements in history were produced by pairs of great minds working side by side on the same task. Software is no exception. In an era of extreme programming, where communication is fundamental to developers working collectively towards the success of a project, the symbiotic nature of software development has never been more apparent. However, with the spread of COVID-19, most software development teams are now distributed and working from home office environments instead. So, how does pair programming work under such circumstances?
Like the standalone PCs of the 1980s, the personal IDE remains an island detached from the opportunity to improve collaboration for the development team and the company as a whole. A new era of connected IDEs is coming that does not require you to leave behind the IDE you love. Using modern plug-in technologies, your IDE can begin to evolve towards a truly Integrated Development Environment that will make collaboration easier while improving code quality.
