As developers, we love our tools and our productivity! IntelliJ IDEA is designed to enhance your productivity not only by providing an environment for developing software but also by serving as a framework for enhancing your experience of the IDE itself. You can do more with IntelliJ IDEA than just customize the themes and code style settings. Whether by automating routine tasks or adding custom language support, you can extend its capabilities to suit the needs of your unique workflow.

In this session, we’ll explore the benefits provided by IntelliJ IDEA’s customization options, and you will learn how to make the IDE your own. We will also look at the plugins available on JetBrains Marketplace, discuss the process of developing them, and demo a few custom plugins.


Sirisha Pratha works as a Java developer in a financial institution. She has been programming in Java using IntelliJ IDEA for more than 10 years.

She is a committer at Eclipse Collections, an open-source Java Collections framework. Sirisha also co-leads the Pittsburgh Java User Group.
