Orion: Coding on the Web

Session Type: 
Standard [25 minutes]

Schedule info

With Orion the Eclipse platform team is building browser-based development tools designed to integrate well with other developer sites and resources at web scale. Our approach builds heavily on the architecture of the web (hyperlinks for tool navigation and RESTful interactions with services) and our UIs are minimal and task focused to promote more of a web experience and allow us to better use the native capabilities of today's modern browsers.

Since June the team has been self-hosting at orion.eclipse.org and we can now talk more convincingly about the pain points driving our next steps. This talk will demo the current state of Orion, and explain the vision of moving software development to the web as a web experience.
