Web based IDE? Sounds cool!

One of the cool thing with WebOS and the Cloud concept is that computational power of the personal computer required to complete task reduced a lot. Tasks are moved to the cloud at the same time and performed on the server or distributed networks of servers… It is a separate topic on its own and I am not going to argue advantages and disadvantages of cloud and webos but rather highlight another use of it as Web based IDE.

Imagine that teams of programmers no longer require to setup environments on their PCs and in order to work on the project they log in from different parts of the world and do familiar operations but no longer on their PC but via Web IDE. It eliminates the need for people to have setup on their PCs and work can be done from terminal like PC – tablet PC, working from home or other trusted location, or reviewing the code, triggering build from the smart phone, etc. Great application!
