After hearing about an offer on the jug-leaders mailing list, I was able to secure JetBrains as a sponsor for VIJUG.
We will be receiving a free personal licence bundle for Java IDE IntelliJ IDEA and the integrated team environment server TeamCity to raffle off in the upcoming three meetings this year as well as a bundle for each presenter. Luckily enough I received a licence as well;-)
As you are probably all aware IntelliJ is the Java IDE that keeps being one step ahead of the free competitors in many aspects and has a dedicated group of users. This is a great opportunity to try the great IDE and give the new team development server a spin as well. All I can tell you from my experience with an older version and a day with the latest version is this: It has its wrinkles like any other IDE, but in general IntelliJ rocks!
I look forward to seeing the faces of the raffle winners 😉
