Software Development in Cloud?
It looks to me like a paradox. While more and more services available in the cloud (even Microsoft joined the crowd) thus reducing resource requirements for client devices, IDEs are getting heavier and heavier (for example, NetBeans 6.7.1 is 232MB, Oracle JDeveloper 11g is 969MB) making developers look like mammoths sitting at very powerful workstations. I think the era of heavy IDEs should come to an end. There are some problems with developing in the cloud and the whole idea may look like coming back to the IBM System/360, but those problems are solvable (I have some thoughts) and software development in the cloud offers a lot of opportunities, for example, making subject matter experts much closer to the implementation, cutting down software development costs. This is the next step for social software and Enterprise 2.0 Think about it!
