Amazon Web Services has launched a browser-based Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and calls it Cloud 9. It will be used by developers for writing, running, and debugging code. The launch was announced nearly a year after Amazon acquired the IDE startup Cloud9. It has been helping AWS compete with IDE offerings from other cloud providers.
The AWS Cloud9 has mainly three parts in it.
The launch was made during Amazon’s re:Invent conference. In a keynote speech by AWS CTO Werner Vogels pointed out that in these changing times, security is more than important. He expressed that there are more languages than before leading to a collaborative experience. “If you develop in this sort of fast-changing development environment, you need help,” he added.
