Congratulations on 20 years, JetBrains! Your tools have made me a better developer. I love how, even as the company has grown, it’s always been clear that my feedback matters. #JB20Bday

Started using @androidstudio and appreciated it for it’s amazing feature set. Found out that it’s based on IntelliJ IDEA. Started using @pycharm @WebStormIDE @intellijidea and @kotlin First thing I search when learning a language – does JetBrains make an IDE for it? #JB20Bday

Favorite JB products? All of them! I use Rider, Webstorm, Datagrip, dotPeek daily. But any time I try another, it feels like home.

I’ve been using JetBrains products for nearly 8 years now. They make the transition between technologies or languages much smoother as I know I always have a robust IDE to depend on.

Happy birthday! I have been using IntelliJ for 20 Years and I’m still developing with pleasure. IntelliJ has been a companion that became more helpful with every release. Whenever I move to a new company, my first question is always “can I work with JetBrains tools?”. It’s an amazing work you have done!

Wow 20 years 0.0 I was just starting with JS 6 or 7 years ago, and trying different IDEs and editors and friend recommended me WebStorm with university licence that we had. I used Uni edition as long as I could and than started to pay for my own licence – since it is the best IDE that I customised so much with shortcuts and plugins, so I can’t think of changing it :) #JB20Bday

JetBrains’ 20th birthday celebration continued into Friday with beautifully organized site parties that included cake, games, music, dancing, and hours of fun. Here’s a small taste of the action from our offices.

It’s been a great 20 years and we’re already looking forward to the next milestone, whatever that may be!
