|Re: [ide-dev] Java IDEs comparison|
I’ve written a few responses to this thread but I don’t think there are any easy answers to these complaints and missing features. Leaving product development in the sole hands of developers is fraught with peril. We love working on technical things, solving hard problems, or making workflows smooth as silk. Few enjoy writing about it.
At the same time, as developers, we have grown a mistrust in traditional marketing. (BTW, I’m pretty sure localhost isn’t dead. I can still ping it.). I think most of us agree with Stephen O’Grady’s thesis that developers are the new kingmakers. Developers decide which IDEs to use based on their own personal feelings and use the ones that get in their way the least and has cool features that really help accelerate their development. The best marketing we can do as developers is make a great product that these people will want to use. If we do the job right, our users will become our best marketers.
