Web based IDE? Sounds cool!

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

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!

If you trying to setup JSF2 + IceFaces + Hibernate + Spring in Maven2 pom you are risking of loosing so much time if you do it from scratch… Trust me I did until I came accross this great post. This blog has archetypes prepared for different flavours of libraries which is a great starting point for setting up a new application development.

Have a look and spare yourself from frustration!

Web Hooks…

Sunday, May 16th, 2010

Recently thought of service that could connect different websites or likely applications that websites hosting. Probably was inspired by Yahoo Pipes and found out this Google talk that explains concept of web hooks:

 

Interesting concept and IMHO next evolutional step towards Web OS, Web applications running in the Clouds…

Lets revisit it in sometime and check where it got to…

Best practices…

“Premature optimization is the root of all evil”

- Professor Sir Charles Anthony Richard Hoare

“Test driven design can lead to emergent optimization and code that is readily optimizable.

If programmers develop test first, many of their upfront concerns about performance can be deferred.”

- Michael Feathers, Emergent Optimization in Test Driven Design
