From April 7, 2016
Starting today, all active Java Champions are eligible to receive IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate for free based upon simple verification. Over the years we have had the opportunity to work with many Java Champions not only a professional level, but we also got to know many of you personally. The feedback that we continue to receive directly contributes to improvements in IntelliJ IDEA and IntelliJ Platform-based products. And for that we thank you and want to show our appreciation.
All active Java Champions can apply immediately to get IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate for free at https://www.jetbrains.com/shop/eform/javaChampion. Be sure to include the link to your active listing on java.net.
IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate is available for free to multiple groups including Java Champions, approved open source projects, students and teachers (along with all other JetBrains products), as well as faculty members and trainers for use in classroom environments.
