Get Involved into IntelliJ IDEA Community!May 3rd, 2012 by Andrey Cheptsov
As you’re probably aware, lots of people use IntelliJ IDEA. Members of our community always have something to share. You can always share feedback, get answers to your questions or help other people with their problems.
We want to see our community well-connected and organized. So we’ve decided to remind you about the channels you can use to communicate with our team and each other to resolve any problems and share experiences.
First of all, the most valuable channel we have and use to improve IntelliJ IDEA is our bug tracker YouTrack. Feel free to submit feature proposals you think are important, or report any problem you encounter while using the product. This is the fastest way to get your problem solved. Don’t hesitate to file even the smallest problems. IntelliJ IDEA developers are always on the lookout for new issues, and respond quickly.
Tip: As we welcome help, we also show our appreciation. The most active contributors are rewarded with free product licenses from time to time.
Another popular channel is Twitter. This communication tool is not only efficient but fun to use too. In addition to the official IntelliJ IDEA account @intellijidea, which we use to promote events and new features, there is also the hashtag #intellij, meant for sharing feedback and useful information about IntelliJ IDEA with others in real time. Today this is probably the fastest and most interactive way to share with the community. Follow us and other users to know what’s going on right now!
Developer Community is our own discussion forum which lets you talk directly to IntelliJ IDEA team, as well as share experiences and knowledge with other users of the IDE.
If you have a question about the product, StackOverflow is probably the first place you should check out. Use the tag intellij-idea for your question and get help from IntelliJ IDEA developers and other users. Most likely, someone has previously raised a similar issue and a solution is already available.
Official Team Blog
Our official IntelliJ IDEA blog is the main place where we post news on events, product discounts, new features, Tips & Tricks and other insights about IntelliJ IDEA. The blog has an RSS feed, so you can choose the most convenient way for you to receive updates.
Internet Relay Chat (IRC)
We review all feedback and requests, and do our best to grant all your wishes. That’s how we continue to provide you with the best product.
Stay with us!
