IntelliJ IDEA Weblog Started!

Hello Everybody!

It's been in the works for a while, and at last it's here: the new JetBrains
sponsored IntelliJ IDEA weblog! We're looking to make this a
community-driven portal where you can discuss anything and everything about
IntelliJ IDEA with other enthusiasts - including us!
We will be posting opinions, quick hints, and more comprehensive "how-to"
series that we hope will lead you into new areas of IntelliJ IDEA which you
may not have been aware of before. Got something in mind that you'd like to
know more about? You can request topics you'd like to see addressed using
the small form on the side-bar at http://blogs.jetbrains.com/idea/. If you
would like to contribute a favorite tip or an entire "how-to" posting,
please send it directly to tips@intellij.com.

There's already a nice article Defining a Live Template for Null-Check on
the blog that you might want to check out.

(Big thanks to Bas Leijdekkers and Etienne Studer for their contributions!)

So, on the next little break you get, come on and take part. Nothing to
lose, and even more development pleasure to be gained!

Hopefully it will be more alive than the last year article series (don't
know the name any more).

Hello Tom,

At least the overhead for publishing an article on the weblog is many times
smaller than that for publishing an OnBoard issue. :)

tips(at)intellij.com.


Would it be possible to let users register and post directly to a community blog, and then you could promote stuff to the official IDEA blog?

I'm jsut thinking it would be easier all around if the contributer could write info using the Blog software (Wordpress) directly.

Also, it sure would be nice if IntelliJ forums supported some of these blog features, esp. embedded images. If the forums supported richer content, people could post tips to community forum, and then Jetbrains could copy them to the blog.

Hello alex,

We really just have started. We'll consider your suggestion, but probably
not in the nearest future.

Best regards,
Alexandra Rusina
