New Cloud9 Launches

The new Cloud9 IDE which I had previously blogged about is now live! I participated as a user in the public beta and found they had really taken it to the next level.

As a developer, there was a gem in the release announcement - the new Cloud9 IDE is built on Docker! Docker has been on my list of things to get up to speed on for a while. It looks like Docker is becoming the default building block and enabling a whole suite of applications that previously wouldn't have been possible because of the ops nightmare. Seriously, Cloud9 give you an Ubuntu backed browser based IDE, with sudo access. Before something like Docker building something like this securely would be next to impossible.

I can't wait to see what other previously out of reach business ideas Docker enables, and I'd love to hear from Cloud9 about their experiences building with it!
