No doubt that almost every application is multi-threaded nowadays. But building a good one is still a big deal. For example frameworks (that were actually supposed to make the concurrent programming easier) became quite complicated themselves. So now it's IDEs' turn.
A list of concurrency related features has been added to IntelliJ IDEA. It includes the asynchronous debugger that is applicable to any concurrent framework. It includes a number of inspections for
scala.concurrent library and Akka framemork. The feature we're most proud of is messages analysis that gives you an opportunity to figure out where a message has been sent from or where it can be received. All those features and usage scenarios will be shown during a live coding session.
Given that, building a good concurrent application is going to be less painful. Especially if using Akka framework.
