Context switching between your IDE, Github.com, JIRA, Terminal, and Slack is no way to optimize collaboration and it results in countless hours of distraction and lack of focus, hurting code quality. Team alignment and productivity depend on just the right mix of collaboration and staying in the zone. Extensible IDEs are opening the door to great innovation in developer workflow. Turning the IDE into the true Hub of the development flow is the best way to integrate the essential tools into a cohesive and streamlined process. In the future, your code host, issue tracker and messaging app will be placed where they belong: In your editor. Here we will discuss how such an integration should happen, and we will spell out the benefits that accrue to the individual developer, the team and the organization.
