Being Amazon for Software Developers. How 39 million click events make your IDE a smarter place.


We all love Amazon. Just because it makes buying the right books and products so easy. And if we don’t know exactly what we are looking for? We can check out what thousands of other users liked and bought before, giving us a very good impression which product we should buy - and which better not.

But how about your IDE? How does it help you to understand how to use new frameworks and APIs? The answer likely is “it could do better”. In your IDE there is no such thing like product recommendations, customer reviews, star ratings, or comments that may help you to decide which API to use or give you an idea how to use it. Up until now.

In this talk we will introduce you to the latest tools we build on top of Eclipse Code Recommenders 2.1 which turn your IDE into an “Amazon for Software developers” by leveraging the waste of implicit knowledge and sharing it with your teammates. Join us to see how sharing of more than 39 million click events turns your Eclipse into the “IDE 2.0” and learn how sharing little pieces of information with your community can speed up your own development.

It’s time for Eclipse to transform the world of IDEs. Again.
