Description

We believe that the browser is the future; therefore we have always seen the Open Web as a robust platform for application development. Meanwhile JavaScript is making its grand comeback. Cloud9 combines these ideas ideas. With everything moving to the Cloud, it is now time to have software development join in. To do this we are building Cloud9 IDE as a SaaS service with an open source foundation. JavaScript applications run online for a purpose, so why shouldn’t you develop your application online too? In this talk we will highlight how easy it is to develop software in the Cloud using Cloud9 IDE, and he will show how to extend the IDE. Ajax.org believes in the open web. Cloud9 itself is GPL licensed and includes full debugging infrastructure. The start focus is on NodeJS development. Other languages than JavaScript are being added such as Ruby, PHP and Phyton. Everything in Cloud9 is an extension, and we are inviting people and companies to join the community to extend the IDE to their own needs and requirements. Cloud9 has a rapidly expanding set of keybindings, syntax highlighters and debuggers.
