Overall Satisfaction with IntelliJ IDEA

I got IntelliJ IDEA as a Github Student Developer account during my undergrad one year back. I must say this is one of the most versatile IDE for Java development. We used this IDE to build Android application for one of the client and keeping version control in IDE is very easy as compared to other available IDE'S. However, I have to migrate to some other open source available IDE'S because, it is paid for professional development.
  • It is freely available in the Github Student Developer pack.
  • It is easy to use.
  • The complete package is bit heavy.
  • It is not memory friendly.
  • We successfully developed an application using deaplearning4J and deployed it on Heroku.
  • As we became accustomed to this IDE, It became paid after a year and we had to migrate to another IDE.
They are memory friendly. The boot-up really fast as compared to IntelliJ IDE. Open-source and freely available to use is one of the major reasons if someone can switch from IntelliJ. Vast community support is available in case of any issue. They occupy less space as compared to IntelliJ IDEA.
Customer support is really good in the case of IntelliJ. If you are paying for this product then, the company makes sure that you will get all the services adequately. Regular update patches are provided to improve the IDE. An online bug report makes it easier for the developers to find the solution as fast as possible. The large online community also helps to find the various solutions to the issues.

Coding in Java is very easy and its versatility makes it easier to debug the large programs. Developing Web applications using this IDE is fun however making professional projects on this IDE is not economical because of its annual fee for its usage. However, it can be used by novice and professionals to develop various applications.
