IntelliJ IDEA Wins Jolt Productivity Award; ReSharper a Finalist
Dr. Dobb’s have announced their annual Jolt Awards for coding tools, recognizing the past 12 months of advances for the tools used in creating, testing, and debugging code.
We would like to thank Dr. Dobb’s for their continued recognition of JetBrains developer tools. This is not the first time we have been acknowledged in the awards, and we will do our best to make sure it is not the last!
Here are some excerpts from the IntelliJ IDEA and ReSharper judges’ reviews:
“The paid nature of the the Ultimate Edition has enabled JetBrains to invest heavily in the IDE’s continual refinement. And version 13 goes farther in that direction than many of the recent releases. It sports a fresher interface, faster startup times, a greater range of features, and as always, the little magical bits that have earned the IDE near-fanatical devotion.”
“Among the new features are lovely capabilities like being able to see variables in third-party libraries for which no source code is available; contract annotations that tell the IDE what output values are returned for specific input values so as to enable the IDE to identify redundant tests, unexecutable code paths, and the like; augmented search (see image) in which you can search for a string anywhere in the code path, in comments only, or in string literals only; automatic copying of resource files to output directories upon build; and a presentation mode for using IntelliJ to be used in code demos or lectures.”

How do the awards work?
Anyone can freely nominate a product for award consideration. The nominees are then reviewed by judges who select six finalists which are then tested in real-world business environments to identify the best coding tool, 2014 Jolt Award Winner. The two runners-up receive Jolt Productivity Awards and the remaining three are identified as finalist.
Congratulations to the teams!
We would like to offer well-deserved congratulations to members of the IntelliJ IDEA and ReSharper teams. And if you missed it, WebStorm was recently recognized as InfoWorld’s 2014 Technology of the Year Award too. Keep up the great work!
