Brackets: An Open Source Code Editor For The Web

Brackets is a new open source project started by Adobe to push tooling on the web forward. Based on the principle that the best developers to build tools for web developers are in fact web developers, Brackets is built in JavaScript, HTML and CSS. MIT-licensed and hosted on github, Brackets is a code editor that challenges the status quo with innovations like inline Quick Editing and live browser connectivity. This session will provide an overview of Brackets and demonstrate how to hack on the project so you can customize and extend it to meet your needs.

Pizza and drinks will be available at 6PM. The presentation will start at 6:30 and last about an hour. If you can’t make the meeting in time, be sure to join us for beers afterwards at The Red Door (across the street from the Adobe office).

    Adam is the product manager for Brackets, so he pretty much knew everything. Great stuff.
