Rapid Development Using Online IDEs

Posted by Will Shah on Sep 1, 2016 10:00:00 AM

One of the most important processes in software development is the Rapid Application Development (RAD) model. The RAD model promotes adaptability – it emphasizes that requirements should be able to change as more knowledge is gained during the project lifecycle. Not only does it offer a viable alternative to the conventional waterfall model, but it has also spawned the development of the Agile methodology, which you can learn more about here.

A core concept of the RAD model is that programmers should quickly develop prototypes while communicating with users and teammates. However, historically, this has been hard to do – when starting a project, you often need to decide which languages, libraries, APIs, and editors to use before you can begin. This takes the “rapid” out of rapid application development, and this was always a problem until online integrated development environments (IDEs) started popping up.

Syntax Highlighting For Code Snippets in HubSpot

Posted by David Taylor-Fuller on May 3, 2016 11:00:00 AM

If you spend enough time perusing technical blogs, one of the things that you will notice is that any code snippets that are included in the article seem to have an IDE or a very good editor embedded in their article since their snippets come with accurate syntax highlighting along with line numbers. Unfortunately, technical blog authors aren’t using some gold plated blog engine to accomplish this particular feat, though such blog engines exist. In most cases, they are using a client side plugin that is a combination of CSS and JavaScript called a Syntax Highlighter.
