Coformatique uses CodeStream to facilitate more effective and efficient peer code review between remote development team members.
Coformatique is a software development company using the latest platforms and technologies to create innovative mobile and web applications for its clients. The company specializes in designing and developing new applications and MVP products. Coformatique has executive leadership and sales personnel in Europe, while the development team is located in Cairo, Egypt.
Peer code review using pull requests is a common method for monitoring and improving code quality. Coformatique, however, realized that using pull requests alone is a cumbersome and inefficient approach to code review because the discussion is limited to only the specific lines of code being committed at that point in time. This limitation is particularly acute when developers and reviewers are in different locations and can’t simply spin their chairs around and discuss issues with the code. Coformatique was seeking a faster and more flexible approach for remote peer review to identify and avoid potential problems as early as possible in the development cycle.
“The fact that you can be on the phone with a remote colleague, or sharing your screen, or messaging over Slack - while using CodeStream to highlight and review code is the core benefit we get from CodeStream. CodeStream is powerful because it is simple to use and it does this one thing really well for us. I’d recommend CodeStream as a better way for any software team to review code, but especially to those with remote developers.”
- Osama Abdelmoghni, Founder and CEO
