    Incredibly well deserved. I picked up a copy a few months ago, and I’ve been a convert ever since. Every single time I think “I wish I could…” I find that you guys have thought of it already, and usually there’s a keyboard shortcut. And the way you have searching set up in settings windows is just brilliant. Thanks and congratulations!

    Let’s be honest – you’ve earned it!

  4. Afshin Mehrabani says:

    That’s really a great coding tool, congrat guys.

    Great news and gratulations! I’m working hard to recommend Idea to other developers at our company. We’re using Eclipse but it lacks some common features Idea has got. Take the very great code refactoring possibilities Idea offers for example.
    Keep up the good work!


    Congratulations. And please make it more easier to set up

    This is great news. I love the product and will be showing all my clients it. I found that it can really help you become a better programmer and put out better products.

    Find me one twitter..

    Extremely well deserved. I was prompted by colleagues to give you a try (I used Eclipse exclusively) but I was initially dubious. When you had the Doomsday sale on, I thought I’d take the plunge. It was the best money I’ve ever spent on dev software, without the shadow of a doubt. My productivity has taken off, and once you unhinge your brain from the Eclipse way of doing things, you will *never* go back.

    Nice! Congratulations, this award is totally deserved! Once you go IntelliJ, you never go Eclipse back :)

  12. John Rhodes says:

    IntelliJ needs no award, its the IDE by far. ’nuff said.

  13. Chris Hatton says:

    Eclipse, Netbeans, Xcode – they work, but I was never *completely* satisfied… until I found IntelliJ and AppCode. JetBrains IDE’s give developers a new passion to code. Award 100% deserved!
