JetBrains adds to array of educational resources and webinars

Developer tools specialist JetBrains has rolled out a plethora of new educational blogs, recordings and webinars to help programmers at any level get the best use from its ever-expanding portfolio.

First up is a walk-through of the Snoop project by JetBrains’ project maintainer Bastian Schmidt — with a recording of the webinar here.

The webinar is the latest in the company’s OSS Power-Ups series on .NET tools such as JetBrains Rider.

According to JetBrains’ Maarten Balliauw, this is all about empowering open source .NET development projects by learning to view and modify properties, inspect triggers from styles and templates, use PowerShell commands, diagnose view binding errors and more.

“Snoop is the Swiss army knife when it comes to analysing and dissecting WPF UI. Unlike the XAML diagnostics inside Visual Studio, it can be easily installed and used on any machine – even on customer site – without hefty installation,” he wrote.

JetBrains has just updated its list of educational courses on JetBrains Marketplace as well — expanding opportunities to learn and teach programming via JetBrains tools.

JetBrains’ Igor Gerasimov said the first four courses on the new repository resulted both from original development and material created by members of the community — an introduction to Python, a Scala tutorial, ‘Kotlin Koans‘ for learning Kotlin syntax, and ‘Rustlings’ for learning Rust code.

“You will learn the basics of Python, such as variables and their operations, strings and other data structures, boolean operators, conditions, and control flow [for example],” added Gerasimov.

“You will learn about Scala’s basic terms and types, proper naming, conditional expressions in loops, lexical scopes, and OOP. You will find out the difference between classes and case classes, learn to apply recursive functions and structure information, and implement higher order functions.”

“One of our main goals is to help knowledge seekers navigate the vast ocean of information available, making it easier for them to find the most illustrative and immersive material. We believe the best way to become an engineer is to dive in,” said Gerasimov.
