AI for Everyone? Kind of


Recently, Salesforce started a campaign concerning their latest product offering, Einstein. This campaign promises, “AI for Everyone”.

I was so happy to see recently that Salesforce was refocusing it’s efforts towards improving the Eclipse IDE. It has also now gone open source. But I was MOST pleased to see that the beta version now offers support for Lightning components. Developer Console is “ok”.
