Onboarding New Employees
Learning a new codebase can be daunting. Time spent can be frustrating for a new developer reluctant to interrupt teammates. Meanwhile the rest of the team is anxiously waiting for contribution. Add to that, fewer than 20% of developers use internal tools to learn about the codebase they were hired to work on, leaving developers largely on their own in figuring out the right path forward. With CodeStream’s knowledge base, once a question is asked and answered, it’s saved so it never needs to be asked, nor answered, again. Whether noting some codemarks alongside code being worked on, or just reading through all the prior comments in the knowledge base, CodeStream dramatically reduces onboarding time.
