IntelliJ IDEA and WebStorm: InfoWorld’s 2015 Technology of the Year Award Winners

On January 26th, 2015, InfoWorld announced their 2015 Technology of the Year award recipients. In total there were 32 winners representing the best of cloud, data, hardware and software applications.

For the second year in a row WebStorm is a winner and IntelliJ IDEA returns to the list in 2015!

InfoWorld 2015 Technology of the Year Award

WebStorm

The WebStorm review by Martin Heller, InfoWorld Test Center Editor, highlights the core features that makes WebStorm “more than an editor” such as: built-in code inspections and code quality tools, Node.js and JavaScript debugger and tracer, Live edit, and integration with the testing tools.

IntelliJ IDEA

Just last month IntelliJ IDEA 14 picked up the 2015 Jolt Productivity Award for Coding Tools and now InfoWorld’s 2015 Technology of the Year. What a great ending to 2014 and start to the new year!

Here is part of what Rick Grehan had to say in his review.

“Granted, we wish the Community edition were equipped with the sorts of J2EE development tools found only in the Ultimate edition: database tools, support for frameworks such as JPA and Hibernate, deployment tools for application servers like JBoss AS, WildFly, and Tomcat. Nevertheless, the Community edition makes a fine Java application development platform that also gives you Android tools, as well as support for other JVM languages like Groovy, Clojure, and Scala (the last two via free plug-ins). Whichever version of IntelliJ IDEA you use, you’ll find a rich array of tools designed to simplify otherwise tedious development chores.”

Live Webinar: Software Architecture as Code, February 12th

We are pleased to invite you to our upcoming webinar, Software Architecture as Code, featuring Simon Brown. Register now and join us Thursday, February 12th, 15:00 – 16:00 GMT (10:00 AM – 11:00 AM EST).

It’s 2015 and with so much technology at our disposal, we’re still manually drawing software architecture diagrams in tools like Microsoft Visio. Furthermore, these diagrams often don’t reflect the implementation in code, and vice versa. This session will look at why this happens and how to resolve the conflict between software architecture and code through the use of architecturally-evident coding styles and the representation of software architecture models as code.

Space is limited, learn more and register now.

Simon BrownSimon Brown is an independent consultant and helps organisations to build better software by adopting a lightweight, pragmatic approach to software architecture. He is the creator of the C4 software architecture model and the author of “Software Architecture for Developers”, a developer-friendly guide to software architecture, technical leadership and the balance with agility.

JetBrains 2014: The Year in Review

Our team was hard at work in 2014 delivering new releases of our existing products and bringing new ones to market. In this post we are going to take a look at those and some of the other biggest moments of the year.

If you remember back to JetBrains Day @ FooCafé in September 2013, we announced several new projects. 2014 saw those plans come to fruition. In February, ReSharper C++ Early Access Program went live, in May Nitra was made open source, September brought CLion EAP, and in December Upsource, our repository browsing and code review tool, reached a stable 1.0 build.

Upsource

We didn’t stop there. Two new products were also added to our portfolio: 0xDBE, JetBrains’ brand new IDE for DBAs and SQL developers, was first announced in June and in October PyCharm Education Edition, a free IDE for learning and teaching programming with Python, went public. You may be interested in checking out our  Interactive Python Programming Course Contest.

In 2014 we continued our commitment to the open source community through our various projects and by providing free open source licenses to non-commercial OS software projects. In July a new open source Kotlin website went live and steady releases of JetBrains Meta Programming System (MPS) continued to go out the door.

Open Source

Travel again back in time to May 2013 when Google announced their selection of IntelliJ IDEA as the base of Android Studio. Well, in December, the highly anticipated Android Studio 1.0 release hit the virtual shelves! This is a great example of open source collaboration working both ways with the work being done on Android Studio being incorporated back into IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate Edition and the free and open source Community Edition.

One of the proudest moments of the year came in September when we announced JetBrains Student License Program. Through this program students and teachers have access to our entire product line of IDEs and .NET Tools. Within the first two weeks of the program, more than 34,000 students were approved and now there are nearly 100,000 students using JetBrains tools for free!

JetBrains Startup DiscountNearly a decade and a half on we haven’t forgotten our startup roots. In February we announced JetBrains Startup Discount Plan. Software startup businesses that meet straightforward criteria get a 50% discount on all of our products. If your startup is just getting off the ground, this is a great place to begin.

Lastly, here are some of the honors that our products picked up in 2014.

2014 was a fantastic year and we expect more of the same excitement in 2015. We sincerely thank you; all of our friends and colleagues, for your continued support and wish you all the best in the coming year. Here’s to another outstanding and productive year in 2015!
