Modern IDEs are complex beast. Even IDE developers say that they sometimes discover new features only while reading the IDE’s code. And does this sound familiar: your colleague is trying to find a class in the project tree, and he doesn’t remember the name of the class, and so you are trying hard to scream:"Just press Ctrl+Shift+E!!!"

Anton will present a system for getting know your IDE more structurally. Audience will learn a lot of tips and tricks, and a lot of different shortcuts will be also covered.
