Some of the key difficulties of managing large development teams are ensuring consistency across developer environments, helping new developers get their tooling and dependencies set up, and enforcing consistency between dev, test, and production environments. Eclipse Che solves this problem by provisioning and managing developer environments in the cloud on top of Kubernetes distributions like OpenShift.

Eclipse Che is a modern, browser-based IDE backed by a powerful, extensible developer workspace management server. It enables instant onboarding of new developers, effective collaboration across distributed organizations, and great integration with source code management systems (including Git), all in a highly extensible and configurable developer environment. Through adoption of industry standards like the Language Server Protocol (LSP) and Debug Adapter Protocol (DAP) and by aligning with APIs used in VS Code, the Eclipse Che community has focused on the extensibility and customization of developer tools and language runtimes—you can code in any language, using your preferred tools, with nothing installed on your local computer.

Dave Neary outlines what Red Hat, Broadcom, Progress, Bosch, and others are doing to move Eclipse Che toward enterprise readiness and to be the best development platform running in the cloud.

This session is sponsored by Red Hat.
