Deal Details

Last Edited by widgit December 21, 2012 at 07:41 PM
Great deals on personal licenses! For example: ReSharper full license is $50, C# only is $37 (full price is $200/$150). For those unfamiliar these are developer tools

For a list of all tools on sale go to JetBrains [jetbrains.com]

ReSharper [jetbrains.com] $50/37 (.Net tool)
WebStorm [jetbrains.com] $12 (Javascript)
PHPStorm [jetbrains.com] $25 (PHP IDE and tools - includes all features of WebStorm)
IntelliJ IDEA [jetbrains.com] $50 (Java IDE/tools)

These are great prices...if you work with these languages I strongly suggest getting them

Deal ends tomorrow morning (6am EST if my math is correct)

Edit: Site is back up! Payments appear to be slow but going through

Nope, I haven't heard anything. I assume they're all backed up, since they couldn't even handle the load earlier this morning. They probably have a queuing system, so I'm guessing we'll hear back sometime today.
Yea, it was similar last year when I initially got webstorm, phpstorm, and rubymine, took like an hour to get my licenses and no confirm or anything like that prior. I'm guessing they're extremely backed up as well.

Finally a deal for me to post, and someone beat me to it. Sigh...

Anyway, great products, and fantastic deal!

Looks like PyCharm, RubyMine and Webstorm are covered by IntelliJ plugins. Better to get IntelliJ for $50.
Jetbrains makes great products. Great deals on some great products. Resharper, DotTrace, IntelliJ and maybe AppCode.

Resharper is incredible! Keeps your code so clean, and the shortcuts are fantastic. I'm thinking of picking up IDEA and PHPStorm. IDEA can do PHP, but I think PHPStorm has some extra features like "Open Directory" and live edit. (actively editing html/java)

Has anyone used their DotTrace tool? I find myself having to troubleshoot performance issues/memory leaks of other dev's code all the time without the luxury of source or a debugger. I'm reading up on windg, but I'm wondering if this tool offers anything useful.
I've used it *trial*. Its descent but i decided to go with the more expensive, more useful ants profiler (from red-gate). I think its worth the money i just think ants is better. I do love resharper and wouldn't want to develop without it.

if you use it you know what you are missing... the only downside is it makes coding so easy that you become dependent on that. Worth every penny

LOL.

75% off $200 = $50 for something that is supposedly "LEGENDARY"...

http://bit.ly/Zn83JG

I went to a .NET user group last night and learned of ReSharper and actually saw the deal before it was posted here...

I haven't read one bad review.

Again, I hope you choose to get it, and I am not being a dick... but you know as well as I do...as developers we often get a false sense of security of knowing how to do something quickly and easy, but then when we go to do it, we may have to do a quick google search to get a few examples/syntax (read: Linq)...

Apparently what this tool does... and from what I read does extremely well is the following:
  • Static error checking (will reveal errors as you type them, no need to compile)
  • Examines code and intelligently offers replacements for improved performance (I'm told it can examine a For Each loop and convert it to a Linq statement if it deems it appropriate)
  • Apparently it can pull/fetch interfaces and give you a summary of what the interface is actually doing (I may be wrong on this feature and this might be a Beyond Compare feature, but hey its late and I've been up for a while)

These are a couple of reasons why I picked it up today... and its only $50... that is a steal.

Among other things, it prevents you from writing bad code. It prompts you to fix and auto fixes bad usages, less efficient constructs, convoluted code, wrong class accessors which may cause issues down the line etc.

It can add assembly reference and include a using automatically if u typed in something that is not in a referenced assembly. You can navigate to any class in your solution with couple of keystrokes...

Like someone said..you have to use it to know it..And it consumes a lot of plugins too..like stylecop etc.

Yes but IntelliJ does a much better job of indexing everything (or something similar) which makes it very responsive and overall a much better IDE than Eclipse

Microsoft makes visual studio so good because it makes us as developers more productive. Resharper takes that to a whole new level.

Between the navigation features (go to implementation, go to file, go to method) the refactoring ability (extract variable, extract method, change iteration to linq) and doing those things in such a way that you know is safe and will work without having copy pasta errors, I would say I have gained at LEAST on average 30 minutes a day of productivity.

Is an extra 30 minutes a day of productivity worth 50 bucks to you? I would hope so.

Also, intellij is the only Java ide that I find is even remotely close to visual studio. Eclipse sucks the big fat one and net beans or whatever is just not good.

I own resharper 5, will probably purchase this and intellij.

EDIT: I completely forgot about the auto import feature. If you start typing a type for a variable and you don't have the import, it will suggest an import for you from the system Assemblies or the projects referenced By your project. Just another neat simple thing that saves 10 seconds of your day. Add that up in a large project and you're looking at a savings of maybe 5 minutes FROM THAT FEATURE ALONE. I seriously cannot stress enough about how good their stuff is for .net devs and they bring some of that love to Java devs with intellij. Even intellij has some of resharpers fucntionality.
