Ensime (https://github.com/ensime/ensime-server), is a Scala IDE for Emacs, It is a fundamentally different design to other IDEs in that it is implemented as a server doing the lifting and emacs doing the display.

Its design leads to a number of interesting opportunities.

This talk gives an overview of Ensimes current state, the future plans and shows some interesting things you can do when you have your IDE as a queryable process.
