You can probably tell that we at JetBrains love table tennis. Many of us enjoy taking a break and hitting a few balls over the net in the special room we have in the office.
IT Table Tennis Cup became the successor of the traditional JUG.ru TT Cup, which ran in the professional IT community of St. Petersburg from 2007 to 2010. After a two year break, the tradition was revived in 2012 by Game|Changers, an innovative program for ad-hoc education and IT business research, also based in St. Petersburg. A total of ten local IT companies contested the Cup this year.
We’re happy to congratulate our team that just won the gold medal in this tournament. A total of ten IT companies contested the cup with JetBrains coming in first place two years in a row. This year EMC² came in a close second and i-Free took home third place. JetBrains was represented by Nikita Raba (ReSharper team), Ekaterina Shevchenko (Chief accountant), Alexey Kudryavtsev (IntelliJ IDEA team) and Ilya Yatsishin (MPS team) — from left to right on the team photo:
Whether by chance or by design, the IT Table Tennis Cup coincided with the Liebherr 2013 World Table Tennis Championships, dominated by the Chinese superstars Zhang Jike, Wang Hao, Ma Long and Xu Xin.

In this webinar, we’ll look at the most important everyday actions in PhpStorm IDE. We’ll learn how to navigate between files, classes or other elements in our project, and see how we can use code autocompletion, PHPDoc, intentions and live templates to make our life as developers easier.
Using automatic inspections and quick fixes, PhpStorm can greatly improve code quality. We’ll get an insight on how to efficiently use version control systems and how we can deploy our projects to remote servers. Join us and learn how to use PhpStorm in the real world!
This webinar is geared towards beginner developers; however, it will be useful for everyone as there will be plenty of tips & tricks to enhance your productivity. Space is limited; please register now. There will be an opportunity to ask questions during the webinar.

JetBrains PhpStorm Team is gearing up for the highly anticipated DrupalCon Portlandevent set to take place May 20th – 24th.
As the official biannual conference of the Drupal community, DrupalCon Portland has been going strong since 2001 when the project was made open source. This year’s theme, “Building Bridges, Connecting Communities,” will address open standards allowing separate independent systems to communicate with each other and bringing together new users and communities.
At our booth, the team will be happy to show you some videos and demo how PhpStorm can be particularly useful for Drupal users. Be sure to register for our free license raffle and grab one of our awesome shirts or a yoyo!

We are happy to confirm that Android Studio, the new IDE for Android development that Google is developing in cooperation with JetBrains, is based on the IntelliJ Platform and the existing functionality of IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition.
IntelliJ IDEA had support for Android project for years, we have been paying attention to Android developers’ needs. That helped us to get more users with every release.
At JetBrains we’ve always aimed at creating a solid product that provided the best out-of-the-box experience possible. Its tons of productivity enhancements, leading code analysis engine and excellent user interface made IntelliJ IDEA stand out among the competition.
And we always were open for collaboration. We made our IntelliJ platform open source in 2009 and since then a couple of companies have built their development environments on top of it. We are happy to see that our efforts have been recognized by such a respected company as Google.
We worked tightly with Google to help them create the best possible experience for Android developers on top of IntelliJ platform. The result of the collaboration is Android Studio, which is available as a preview release today. We are sure that it will attract thousands of new developers to the platform and will make Android programming so much more pleasant.
This doesn’t mean we’re dropping Android support from the IntelliJ Community Edition. It will remain a free and open Java IDE with full Android support and will include the new features developed by both the Google and JetBrains teams. We will continue to work hard on the core IntelliJ experience as well as help improve Android Studio.
You can see the updated Android support in the Early Access Preview of IntelliJ IDEA v13 that is opened today. Please try it now and give us your feedback. This EAP build includes all of the new features of Android Studio except for the new project wizard and the AppEngine cloud endpoints integration. These latter features will also appear in our EAP builds in the coming weeks.
JetBrains will be in the Big Apple June 10th – 12th for Scala Days NYC and we hope to meet you there!

The conference provides a great opportunity to meet with the JetBrains team and other key contributors to the language and related technologies.
Come by our booth to learn about our support for Scala, which is available for free in IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate and IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition via a separate plugin. Our team will be happy to have a conversation and answer your questions.
Be sure not to miss our session with Andrey Cheptsov, “Scala Developer Tools in IntelliJ IDEA: SBT, Play and Scalate,” Wednesday, June 12th from 11:15 – 12:00.
With IntelliJ IDEA frequently called the most intelligent Java IDE, JetBrains is working to replicate similar levels of code assistance and developer tools for Scala. This presentation will showcase some of the IDE’s trickiest features that help developers to be more productive, and will provide a brief overview of IntelliJ IDEA’s plugin infrastructure for Scala development, including support for SBT, Play Framework and Scalate.

The recording of JetBrains and Microsoft joint webinar with Hadi Hariri, Refactoring Legacy Code Bases using Microsoft Visual Studio and ReSharper, is now available on JetBrains.tv and YouTube. Enjoy!
About this webinar:
Not everyone has the possibility of working on Greenfield projects or doing TDD or BDD. Many of us often end up having to work with legacy code bases that have little notion of what SOLID design principles are and unit tests are non-existent. It can be daunting to have to maintain these types of systems. However, with a little bit of effort, we can try and make the best of the situation. We can combine some well-known refactoring techniques, along with code analysis and design concepts to improve the quality of the code.
In late 2012 Oracle announced the expansion of the Duke’s Choice Award program to include regional awards in conjunction with each international JavaOne Conference. The expanded Duke’s Choice Award program celebrates Java innovation happening within specific regions (Latin America, Russia, India and China) and provides an opportunity to recognize winners locally.
In keeping with the ten year tradition of the Duke’s Choice Award program and the first at JavaOne Russia (2013), the most important ingredient is innovation. JetBrains has been recognized for the new JavaFX support in the latest version of IntelliJ IDEA, and in general as a strong supporter of open source software. Our free and open Community Edition and other projects such as Kotlin, continue to have a huge influence on the Java community.
“The Duke’s Choice Award is a great honor for us,” says Eugene Toporov, JetBrains Marketing Lead. “We’re glad to receive recognition of our efforts being on the right track with the Java community needs.” Eugene continues, “This is a great motivation for the whole team to continue making software development a pleasure.”
