Bungee Labs and Their Ajax-Based IDE
After years of working with developers at Microsoft, Alex Barnett thought the pitch from Bungee Labs was too good to be true. A Web-based development environment with the richness and power of a fat, local IDE but with a easier way to share, test and publish applications to the web? Then he saw it. Seeing lead to believing. Now Barnett is sharing the story with others as the community manager at Bungee Labs.
Bungee Connect includes an IDE with loads of Ajax goodness that makes it feels like your using a desktop application. More importantly, Bungee Connect offers a system to make it easier than ever for developers to mash-up web services, program entire applications, share with other engineers and deploy applications to the grid. And unlike other development environments, Bungee Connect works from within a standard Internet Explorer or Firefox or Safari Web browser.
