This is a hands-on workshop on the new Wolfram Workbench development environment. The Wolfram Workbench provides a comprehensive suite of tools for working with all aspects of Mathematica development, being particularly useful for developing large Mathematica applications. It provides many features, such as syntax highlighting and error checking, function indexing and lookup, outline view for code, many quick assistants for common tasks, and an integration with the Mathematica help system. It also integrates with code repository systems such as CVS. It contains a debugger and profiler for Mathematica, as well as an interface to the Mathematica test environment. The Wolfram Workbench provides good support for a full set of Mathematica technologies, integrating well with the Mathematica front end, and technologies such as J/Link, GUIKit, and DatabaseLink. It also works as a development environment for gridMathematica and webMathematica.
