JetBrains 2014: The Year in Review

Our team was hard at work in 2014 delivering new releases of our existing products and bringing new ones to market. In this post we are going to take a look at those and some of the other biggest moments of the year.

If you remember back to JetBrains Day @ FooCafé in September 2013, we announced several new projects. 2014 saw those plans come to fruition. In February, ReSharper C++ Early Access Program went live, in May Nitra was made open source, September brought CLion EAP, and in December Upsource, our repository browsing and code review tool, reached a stable 1.0 build.


We didn’t stop there. Two new products were also added to our portfolio: 0xDBE, JetBrains’ brand new IDE for DBAs and SQL developers, was first announced in June and in October PyCharm Education Edition, a free IDE for learning and teaching programming with Python, went public. You may be interested in checking out our  Interactive Python Programming Course Contest.

In 2014 we continued our commitment to the open source community through our various projects and by providing free open source licenses to non-commercial OS software projects. In July a new open source Kotlin website went live and steady releases of JetBrains Meta Programming System (MPS) continued to go out the door.

Open Source

Travel again back in time to May 2013 when Google announced their selection of IntelliJ IDEA as the base of Android Studio. Well, in December, the highly anticipated Android Studio 1.0 release hit the virtual shelves! This is a great example of open source collaboration working both ways with the work being done on Android Studio being incorporated back into IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate Edition and the free and open source Community Edition.

One of the proudest moments of the year came in September when we announced JetBrains Student License Program. Through this program students and teachers have access to our entire product line of IDEs and .NET Tools. Within the first two weeks of the program, more than 34,000 students were approved and now there are nearly 100,000 students using JetBrains tools for free!

JetBrains Startup DiscountNearly a decade and a half on we haven’t forgotten our startup roots. In February we announced JetBrains Startup Discount Plan. Software startup businesses that meet straightforward criteria get a 50% discount on all of our products. If your startup is just getting off the ground, this is a great place to begin.

Lastly, here are some of the honors that our products picked up in 2014.

2014 was a fantastic year and we expect more of the same excitement in 2015. We sincerely thank you; all of our friends and colleagues, for your continued support and wish you all the best in the coming year. Here’s to another outstanding and productive year in 2015!
