The ever-growing list of integrations is awesome.

Pros:

Feels like the future of developer collaboration. Very well built product; never encountered any bugs.

Cons:

Requires a bit of wrangling to get your team to buy in and adopt it, just like any workflow tool. Well worth it though!

Excellent interface and easy to understand/follow.

Can’t wait to see this product grow!

Pros:

I work in a small shop and this is a great way to help our team grow. Our code is unique and we have a hard time training new developers.

Cons:

I don’t have enough experience to list any cons

I'd love to work in an enviromento where I could use it.

Pros:

Seems really good for collaborative and remote teams. Team code review activities can be easily achieved and issues can be created quickly.

Cons:

As any tool, seems like culture issues over the teams can slow down adoption.

No more copy/paste on slack!!

Pros:

Great tool. Allow not only teams to discuss code, but makes pair programming possible even with remote reams

Cons:

Only available thought the internet? Any on prem version in the future?

We do have an on-prem version in the works. Probably 6-8 weeks out. Thanks for your feedback!

Five years from now developers will be thinking in terms of two eras: BC (Before CodeStream) and AC (After CodeStream).

Pros:

Cut and paste code to Slack was cool. This is next level. Topic #1 from our last launch was collaborating through the DLC. =SOLVED

Cons:

Too early to tell. 30 seconds to add from VS extensions. Side effects may include denial and depression from loss of life before CodeStream.

Thanks Patrick. Epic comments!
Codestream is just awesome! Software development on brand new code is hard enough as is it. Now imagine trying to understand code that was written by someone else over 10 years ago!! It's what I had to do as a backend engineer since my company insisting supporting old application written in Perl and no one maintain it for ages. Having all the necessary documentations in the code just help debugging and understanding code logic in the same time. Codestream allows multiple contributors to work on the code in the same time, instead of having all the history in slack channels or emails, it's now all in the code. It saves so much time to onboard a new engineer. Highly recommended!
