Thanks JetBrains


I just wanted to write a quick post thanking JetBrains. This has nothing to do with my previous post declaring my un-dying love for their products. Conveniently enough I pay attention to their happenings including development of the products I use: AppCode, ReSharper and PHPStorm. A few days ago they posted on Facebook asking people to predict their big announcement of a feature coming to ReSharper. They also posted about it on Twitter adding that it had to do with languages. I quickly guessed that they were adding C++ support to ReSharper, and was correct! For this I was one of 5 people selected who had guessed C++ to win a free copy of ReSharper. Now, for those who you who know me, know that I don’t use .NET outside of work (I don’t even own a PC that runs Windows or a copy of Visual Studio), so I had no use of a personal copy of ReSharper. Luckily the nice folks at JetBrains were ok giving me a license for IntelliJ IDEA 12 Ultimate, which is their Java/Polyglot IDE which can do everything PHPStorm can do plus support any other language.

So the short of it THANKS GUYS!!! I will get a lot of use out of this license, maybe I’ll get back into Java development again, who knows…
