Bespin: Your Future Developement Environment

Right now everyone uses standard applications such as eclipse, netbeans, aptana, bluefish, emacs, etc. to do their development. We call them IDEs for integrated development environments. However, this will likely change in the future. Bespin is an IDE that runs in the browser. Yes, completely in your browser, storing your files in the cloud. Bespin is written in 100% JavaScript and uses canvas, which we will be learning about later in class, for drawing graphics. The current version is still an alpha release but it is already amazing.

So, go sign up and play with it! In case you are still unsure about what I mean by web applications: Bespin is a web application. This class is about learning to write software such as Bespin.
