Code Completion, Episode 3: Where Is the Dataset?
As we discovered in the second installment of this series, a modern code completion system needs machine learning to rank the suggestions most effectively. Machine learning has one thing in common with human learning: it requires data to extract knowledge. There are many aspects to that process. We use so-called supervised learning for code completion, and that involves feeding the algorithm a
Code Completion, Episode 2: Why Machine Learning?
Why not order by what’s logical? I don’t understand.From a bug report In episode 1, we learned about the principal components of the code completion system and discussed its usage patterns and quality requirements. Today, let’s look into what reasons we have to employ machine learning aside from just following the hype. It’s a tough decision to make to replace “code that works” with a machi

JetBrains 7th Annual Hackathon: Arranged Differently
Arranging a new hackathon The arrangement With the expansion of JetBrains this year and the move into our new offices, we had to push back this year’s hackathon a little bit.

The rules were simple: The Hackathon began Wednesday, September 18th, at noon sharp CEST and

Well, developers mainly think in code, and the first lines of IntelliJ IDEA code appeared in a product
