New Live Stream: Make IntelliJ IDEA Your Own

Images are a great way to personalize anything.

Recently, a gif showing a customized IntelliJ IDEA caught my attention (here’s its screenshot). It included a custom inspection with an avatar based on one of my very dear friends, Chandra Guntur, posted by another dear friend, Sirisha Pratha:

Make IntelliJ IDEA Your Own

Session agenda

As developers, we love our tools and our productivity! IntelliJ IDEA is designed to enhance your productivity not only by providing an environment for developing software, but also by serving as a framework for enhancing your experience of the IDE itself. You can do more with IntelliJ IDEA than just customize the themes and code style settings. Whether by automating routine tasks or adding custom language support, you can extend its capabilities to suit the needs of your unique workflow.

In this session, we’ll explore the benefits provided by IntelliJ IDEA’s customization options, and you will learn how to make the IDE your own. We will also look at the plugins available on JetBrains Marketplace, discuss the process of developing them, and demo a few custom plugins.
