On the Learn stage, in startup safari, we talked about development. Bassem Makarem, the co-founder of Myceleum, explained what an integrated development environment is. He showed that it is possible to save time and go faster with a new solution.
This article is a recap of his passage. However, you can view the video through the link at the bottom of the article.
What is a development environment
The integrated development environment, also called IDE, is the place where you develop a project. It is an application that gathers a set of tools to optimize work time and productivity.
The problem with development environments is that when you have tools to download into your environment, they have to be compatible with each other. When there are version discrepancies, bugs appear because of conflicts between the different tools. So you have to debug and that adds extra time.
Or when you install a development environment, you have to follow an installation manual. This is often where mistakes are made because we are human. Because of the complexity of the environment, developers make mistakes. And sometimes you just don’t know how to do that installation.
So to avoid these errors, it is necessary to isolate the different components from the environment.
Containers are those elements that isolate software so that they do not interfere with each other.
This technology has been around for a while having been popularized by Docker, whose role is to create these containers. This tool makes things easier. However, there are still some issues to be resolved, so it’s not used very often.
Installing a development environment is a tedioubefores task that requires between 1 day and 1 week of work starting to code.
A team effort
When we code, we often do it in a team. This means that everyone must have the same software installation, which is sometimes complicated.
But also, when you code, you want to have your development environment local as well as online. This gives you more control over any problems that may arise.
But also, when you code, you want to have your development environment local as well as online. This gives you more control over any problems that may arise. Indeed, when moving from local to online, there are some bugs that come up.
Myceleum is a platform that allows you to install and customize your development environment in less than 10 minutes. The platform uses container technology to avoid conflicts between applications.
It also synchronizes the environments of different team members. There will be no more errors due to the different environments of the colleagues. This will save you time because you will know directly that it is a code error.
The third solution from Myceleum is a marketplace. It allows developers to buy or sell development environments. Developers can buy a custom environment with confidence, knowing that the seller is another developer who guarantees its good condition. This is to save installation time, because instead of installing a custom environment that already exists, it is better to buy it directly.
Languages and Frameworks
Myceleum has the majority of languages such as :
- Golang etc
In addition it works to add several.
Myceleum for education
When you learn a new technology, you should not be focused on the programming language you are using in order to better concentrate on the subject. Let’s say a teacher gives his students an assignment and they are required to develop in a certain language. With Myceleum, they will be able to code in the language they want so they don’t have to waste time installing the teacher’s language. For both the student and the teacher, this will allow them to make rapid progress.
Also, with Myceleum, students will be exposed to container and Docker technology early on. It’s not very common and students only get exposed to it when they are in the enterprise.
To summarize, Myceleum is a solution for development environments. The application saves time, avoids errors and makes it easy to customize environments.
To give you a better idea of these features, Bassem has made a small demo at the end of the video. Follow the link to watch it.
