Whether you are wondering if cloud-based IDEs will ever be real, or whether you wished the good old Eclipse IDE moved forward; EclipseCon is the place to be to get a glimpse of the future and to help shape it.
The conference program gives a lion's share to IDEs of all sorts. It is exciting to see more activity in this area, either kicked by the commitment of companies, individual contributions, or efforts funded through Friends-Enabled Eclipse IDE/Platform Enhancements Program (FEEP). After all, there have been many years of uncertainties and disappointments with the IDEs coming from Eclipse, but the conference will show that things are turning around. I feel confident in saying that Eclipse is back, and that your next IDE will be coming from Eclipse.org!
On the desktop front, you will see how the IDE keeps on expanding its abilities by improving support for:
- Hybrid mobile applications
- Virtualization technologies like Docker, Vagrant, etc.
- Embedded development such as:
- Development for the cloud such as:
All that to say that the future of the IDE looks bright and EclipseCon will be a great place to see all the innovation.
