Language Server Protocol: Why the hype?
The Language Server Protocol developed by Microsoft for Visual Studio Code is a language and IDE agnostic protocol which clearly separates language semantics from UI presentation. Language developers can implement the protocol and benefit from immediate support in all IDEs, while IDE developers, who implement the protocol get automatic support for all these languages without having to write any language-specific code. This session will let you learn more about the innards of the LSP. We will also have an overview of the current implementations in Eclipse, and outside Eclipse as well.
