Reviewing the Code Review, Part I
August 7, 2019

Some of our customers are telling us that they are using CodeStream to shorten code reviews by as much as 50%. It’s a lightweight approach, and we are trying to learn from their experience and feedback, and improve on the processes and features we offer to make those code reviews even better. CodeStream introduces the concept of a continuous code review, a light-weight, in-editor process that enables the review of any part of your codebase, at any time. Making code review continuous means you can get feedback earlier in the process as you are stubbing out functions and classes, during heavy development while you are building a new feature, immediately prior to merge as you seek feedback from your team, and importantly even for code that was merged some time ago, as you come across technical debt in your codebase.

My Journey: From Single Developer to Team Productivity Tools
July 24, 2019

If you are or were a fan of the Atom editor you might have encountered git-plus, one of the most downloaded extensions from their marketplace. I created that extension 5 years ago and it’s been downloaded 2.5 million times. I now work on team productivity tools, but my first passion was making git more accessible and useful to individual developers. For anyone not familiar with git (I assume that means almost nobody who works as a developer), git is a distributed version-control system for tracking changes in source code during software development. It is designed for tracking changes in sets of files which makes it great for coordinating work among programmers. Its goals include speed, data integrity, and support for distributed, non-linear workflows.
