BerlinLearning NewsOEB Exhibition

This year JetBrains, the creator of award-winning coding tools such as IntelliJ IDEA, ReSharper, and Kotlin, introduced JetBrains Academy, a new-wave training platform for future software development professionals.

The first member to join JetBrains Academy’s learning experience is Hyperskill, a project-based online learning platform. For beginners, experienced programmers, and anyone in between, Hyperskill takes learners through every level of comprehension with small applications built step by step. This challenges learners to apply their newly gained knowledge to practical solutions and thus get a deeper, hands-on understanding of programming.

JetBrains Academy is currently in Early Access, so all those interested can already give it a try free of charge. Master professional tools to ease people into the developer’s workflow and enjoy full integration with the JetBrains IDEs while working on projects.

JetBrains team will be showcasing the latest features of JetBrains Educational Products and JetBrains Academy on November 27 - 29 at OEB 2019. Those interested in best practices and tools for Computer Science learning and teaching can chat with the JetBrains Educational Products team at booth L32.
