This is just a reversed text:

The product domain-specific languages are specified, is where the next of quest hides. The case where Dutch tax is processed, is a place you should show interest. Look hard as when text is white, sometimes it is out of sight. Cmd/Ctrl+A helps.

JetBrains has MPS for creating your own domain-specific language.

Next, we have to look for “The case where Dutch tax is processed”.

After opening the PDF, we can find a hidden white text.

The text reads:

This is our 20th year as a company, we have shared numbers in our JetBrains Annual report, sharing the section with 18,650 numbers will progress your quest.

After navigation to the latest JetBrains Annual report, there is a text in the source code of the page.

I have found the JetBrains Quest! Sometimes you just need to look closely at the Haskell language, Hello,World! in the hackathon lego brainstorms project

There is a funny LEGO comic on that page.

If you look carefully, you can actualy read the leetspeak.

Career page has this text in source code:

To progress with your quest what you need:
- To check out what we have for game developers.
- Be geeky enough to remember how you used to cheat at Konami games
- Try cheating on the page.

This one was a bit tricky. But, after searching the Konami cheat codes, you can actually play a classic ball-and-paddle arcade game!
