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.
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.
