Open Source Cloud Development Comes of Age 

We are currently witnessing the increased adoption and coming of age of open source cloud development tool technologies. More tooling has started moving to the cloud, with Eclipse Theia, Eclipse Che, Eclipse Open VSX, and other projects hosted at the Eclipse Foundation being a big part of that migration.  

Enterprises have been quick to adopt open source cloud-based technologies to advance their own innovations. This month, we tell you about three recent initiatives that showcase the innovations and advances being made in the Eclipse Cloud DevTools community:

  • Eclipse Theia Blueprint, a downloadable template tool that makes it faster and easier to build custom desktop IDEs based on Eclipse Theia.
  • Eclipse Theia Memory Inspector, a memory viewer that may well deliver one of the best memory inspection experiences available in any IDE.
  • The Eclipse Embedded Cloud Development Special Interest Group, which helps organizations focused on accelerating the move to cloud-hosted tools for embedded software development to collaborate more closely.
Be sure to check the links at the end of each article for details on how to get involved in these new initiatives as well as how to provide feedback.
Thanks for reading,
Clark Roundy
