Less than 20% of developers report using the company’s internally generated documentation in learning how their codebase works. CodeStream allows developers to communicate about their code in real time efficiently, while generating institutional knowledge in the process. Problems are solved faster, code quality increases, and products ship sooner.
CodeStream allows developers to ask a question about any part of the code, in context, at any time. No need to wait for a commit to get your questions answered. CodeStream works across files, branches and even across repos. You can reference solutions that were developed in one part of the code to solve a similar problem in another. With CodeStream, you can connect to your favorite issue tracker and easily link issues to particular codeblocks, simplifying their management and resolution.
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.

Given that employee turnover is highest in tech companies among all industries, chances are your best developers will leave and someone new will have to take over your codebase within the next 18 months. Developers report spending as much as 75% of their time trying to understand existing code. This creates a knowledge gap that slows down the development process. With CodeStream, understanding happens faster, making new developers productive sooner, and accelerating knowledge transfer.
We know that your source code is one of your most valuable and sensitive assets. For most development teams, it's a literal representation of your most important work product.
CodeStream servers do not require access to your source code. To establish links between discussion threads and blocks of code, we use commit IDs and line number offsets, which are captured by the IDE when the thread is created. This approach allows us to build the service without requiring access to the source tree itself.
