Slack Gives CodeStream their Thumbs Up

We are delighted to announce that Slack has thoroughly reviewed and approved CodeStream for deployment through their app store.  While we have supported Slack through our deep and feature-rich integration for many months now, users who were waiting for an official approval to clear internal infosec concerns can now move forward with full confidence in deploying CodeStream through their Slack authentication.

With CodeStream, Slack becomes more powerful and useful for developers and development teams.  If you have been using Slack to discuss code, you already know that it’s a bit cumbersome.  Cutting and pasting from your IDE and then explaining all the context so that your reviewer or your team can comment on your post is long and tedious.  With CodeStream, you can just share any code block in context right from your IDE, with any question or comment attached, and it will flow instantly to Slack, nicely formatted, with a link that takes you directly to the code it refers to. Any of your teammates can reply in Slack or in CodeStream, as they choose, and the reply will become  part of the thread that is permanently linked to the code in question, thus becoming documentation.

You can install the CodeStream app here.

Your team knows a lot about your code but the knowledge is locked inside the heads of individual developers.

CodeStream helps to capture and share that knowledge, making your team happier, more productive and more resilient.
