Open Source in 2017

What trends and directions are waiting for the Eclipse open source community in the new year?

Pair Programming in the Cloud

Pair Programming is a tenet of agile software development in which two programmers focus their energies simultaneously on one code base.

The Ghost of Tests Yet to Come…

The Future of Build Tools

One of the most important aspects of a build tool is to make developers and build engineers highly productive. In 2017, innovations that used to be reserved to the most advanced engineering companies will become mainstream.

Eclipse Is Learning New Protocols

Eclipse LSP4E project is bringing language servers to the Eclipse IDE. Language support for C#, JSON Schema, and much more, will soon be connected to our favorite IDE!
