Live Webinar: Remote Development with CLion

CLion v2018.3 comes with Remote Development support. What is remote development and why is it useful? How does CLion support it?

It’s actually a cloud of activities which different developers can take different parts from, depending on what their goals are. In this webinar, we’re going to look at all these parts, so you know what’s available, and then look at how CLion enables, automates, and simplifies the whole process.

Join us on Thursday, February 28th, 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM CET (11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EST).


Register now!

Space is limited.


We’re going to look at some of the remote development topologies that developers work with:

Remote debug (same architecture):

  • Starting with everything local, manually deploying
  • Introducing remote debug using GDB server
  • Syncing files

Remote debug (different architecture)

  • Cross-compilation with CMake

Full remote:

  • Building, running, and debugging over ssh
  • Running and debugging tests remotely
  • Developing in a remote context (e.g. with platform-specific symbols)
  • WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux)

Different hardware:

  • Remote development on Raspberry Pi, as an example

    Arduino, Rasperry Pi and other microcontrollers and single board computers have gained significant popularity over the past decade both at home and in business.

    Showing us how to set up CLion as the IDE for these platforms would be quite valuable, in both cross-compile and remote-compile/debug configurations.

    Looks very interesting.

    Had some major issues attempting to do remote debugging a while back.
    Targeting an rPi from a Windows 10 host/development environment.

    At that time it seemed like CLion was geared towards targeting a ‘Nix remote from a ‘Nix host.

    Quick question:
    Which host (development) environment will Phil be working from during the webinar?

      I’ll mostly be hosted on macOS – but I’ll do some Windows, too. I’ll try to squeeze it in for the rPi demo.

    Please fix the Clion’s blog post sorting algoritm: it does not show the latest post at top.
    It confuses the user who came to look for updates and any news, but instead see the post from many weeks ago.
    Others JB’s blogs are OK.

    Thank you!

        What JetBrains may consider the most valuable and what I consider the most valuable is not always going to agree. I am with kotlinFan that the entries should be in chronological order, or at least give an option for it. I was searching for the Remote Development Webinar blog entry, but the first post at the top of this blog is from Jan 22nd, so I assumed the entry was not on this page thinking the most recent entry was from Jan 22nd. I navigated a few times away from this page until I searched for Webinar and found the entry.
