JetBrains Marketing Team needs your advice

Hi All!

JetBrains Marketing Team needs an advice from people who loves IDEA and
knows how to "develop with pleasure".

We are thinking about creating a public blog on our website dedicated to
tips and tricks of using IDEA. Something like that already exists for
OMEA (http://blogs.jetbrains.com/omea/)

The blog could be dedicated to both features of IDEA and interesting
plugins both commercial and free which provide new functionality or
integration. But it is not advertising tool.

We would like if not only guys from JetBrains write to this blog but
people from community around as well. Truely speaking we simply don't
have enough cicles to do it regularly only ourselves.

It means starting such blog we should expect that, you guys, who are
experts in IDEA, will be interested to share your knowledge and ideas
with people around.

What do you think, guys, could it be interesting? Useful? Any ideas or
thoughts?

Could somebody from community here to be interested to write in this
blog time to time?

Best regards

That would be great! Could there be some entries about plugin
development too? And perhaps upcoming new features like Dmitry Jemerov
is doing is his blog? It would need to have screen shot's (OMEA's blog
likes slightly boring to me with only text).
I'm not a terrific writer, but would like to write an entry now and then.

You could have slogan sections like:

"Buying IDEA is like adding another testicle... without it you can be average, but with it your production will be at least 33% better than your nearest competitor!" ;)

That's a very nice idea, but I have to ponder what will be the added
benefit on top of the newsgroups? We have a place to discuss issues.

Will the blog/forum intended to eventually replace the newsgroups?

Amnon

No. This blog should not replace newsgroups and not too much about
discussing things.
The idea is to collect knowledge from experts and make it available for
everybody.

I would be willing to write for it some times. I think it sounds cool.

OK.

In that case I'd like to share things like how our project is structured
and built on developers machine and see how other people do that.

Go for it :)

The forums here are very helpful at times but a lot of information gets lost over time. I remember several months back there was a post about the little known features of IDEA that was pretty cool. That kind of thing would be much better served in a blog even if it orginates from here. Someone could collect the information and format it nicely to submit for publication in the blog.

That would be great! Could there be some entries about plugin
development too?

Hmm, very interesting... we expected something like 50%, but let's count:
x * 1.33 = x + 1
x = 1 / 0.77 ~ 1.3 (1.3 testicle, one testicle and something like testicle two)

So, this slogan is valid for "defective" men or for "defective" addition.

:)

...unless of course that extra testicle isn't all it's cracked up to be? ;) j/k

Nah... must be defective addition!! :)

Hello Everybody,

This initiative is really nice and can even bring us fruitful results if it
does not finish as our "Tips-exchange" initiative a couple of years ago :)

Anyway, here is a particular suggestion on where to start.
Since we will need to do some preliminary job before we publish the first
tips, you guys could start sharing your favorite tips with us, by posting
them to tips@intellij.com . We will then compile them and start the blog
with comments like "Recommended by Bas Leijdekkers", or "Alexey Efimov",
etc.

We very much hope for your valuable input.

Thanks a lot in advance! This should work for mutual benefits :)))

And have a nice weekend!!!

Hi Ann

Is the tips blog still planned? I posted some tips to tips(at)intellij.com but did not get any feedback, yet - not sure if they ended up in the mail nirvana or if they were received successfully (or whether the idea of the tips blog has been abandoned).

Or maybe I'm just too impatient... :)

Ann is currently at Javapolis in Antwerp. I doubt she's working on the
tips there... :)
