Codenvy Web Based IDE system is an interesting tool.

We have been reviewing the Codenvy Web IDE system for use by our members for doing code research for the projects we want to work on.

Our leader Michael McGinn was invited to talk with the Tyler Jewell, CEO of the Codenvy project to get a feeling for how it could work for our members.

Over all it was a very interesting phone conversation and I came away with hope that a robust solution for our members to code projects is possible now and will continue to get better as they release updates to the system over time.

We were comparing the systems to Cloud 9 and were happy to learn that the Codenvy system is built on a NodeJS non-blocking system so it has the ability to scale faster and be very quick. Cloud 9 is a different system in that it builds a virtual machine and every thing that happens gets run from that single virtual machine so there are going to be speed and scaling issues with virtual machine instance vs nodejs systems.

Give it a try:
https://codenvy.com/ws/waptug/WordPress  this is my account with my WordPress build in it.
https://codenvy.com/f?id=72qqs8e8u08hk9y3 is my factory link that you can use to log into Codenvy then persist it to your own account and develop with it.
Remember that if you want your code changes to be saved you must save the project. Changes you make inside the running project are not persisted between runs of the project. You must edit the project tree files to have your changes persist.




How to thank people that refer you to others by using ReferralKey

I grow my web hosting and development business by referrals. People that I have done good work for in the past share my info with people who need what I do.

This is great for me and great for the people referring me out. I always personally thank the people who send me great referrals.

I use a slick referral tracking system called ReferralKey.  This web-based tool saves me time and encourages my associates to actively refer me to their friends and business associates.  ReferralKey allows me to manage the referrals that get sent out and track how they work out.  I can also facilitate sending a thank you gift to the people that send me the referral if the referral turns into a revenue producing client.

ReferralKey also provides the ability for me to endorse  any of my contacts and give them the opportunity to return the favor.  After an endorsement is approved it will show up on my referral profile page.

The ReferralKey system will also let me post updates to my activity stream that gets shared with the others in my network. This is a great way to give helpful articles and postings that benefit the reader and enhance my brand value.
