Losing a key developer can be devastating to any team, but with CodeStream since you've captured that institutional knowledge other team members can much more quickly and easily step in and fill the void. Also since this knowledge is distributed, you can ramp new team members quickly with less time and strain on your key (and most productive) developers.
By harnessing the power of CodeStream's knowledge base, dev teams can understand code more effectively and efficiently. There is a high correlation in how well a team understands code and the defects created. Simply, a more understandable codebase is a better codebase. CodeStream also integrates with the tools you already use -- task management, error reporting, etc.
CodeStream powered teams can:
Through reduced context switching and cost of code-orientation, teams can do more with less, faster
Through better targeted documentation of high risk areas of code, pitfall avoidance, complex but necessary code, etc
When debt is more effectively surfaced, it can be paid when it is most efficient to do so
Teams that better understand their code are more confident and happier which leads to better outcomes
Teams that spend less time context-switching and more time focused on problem solving are far more productive
By turning conversation into documentation, your codebase is instantly more approachable and understandable
CodeStream enhances your existing services by connecting them to your source tree.
Capture institutional knowledge about your codebase without disrupting existing workflows.
Discuss code with your teammates without leaving your editor, and it'll post to Slack or MS Teams. Your teammates can reply there and the entire thread will be visible in CodeStream, attached to the block of code in question.
CodeStream makes it simple to start a collaboration session with your teammates.
See some code you'd like to improve? Create an issue without leaving your editor by selecting the code and hitting a key. CodeStream enables continuous code review on any code, even after it's been merged, using your existing defect tracking tool of choice.
CodeStream works as a plugin for your IDE, which makes code conversations as easy as: select the code, type your comment.
