CodeSee was founded in 2019 to develop the world's first solution for continuous understanding of codebases. The company is based out of San Francisco and is backed by boldstart ventures, Uncork Capital, Wellington Access Ventures, Menlo Ventures, Precursor Ventures and Salesforce Ventures, among others.
Navigating and understanding unfamiliar code is a challenge known by all developers, no matter their experience or skill.
It’s a challenge that prohibits cross-team clarity and progress, and acts as a barrier to entry for those new to the world of computer science.
It’s time to change how we learn and maintain code—especially as our codebases become more complex and scale up.
Many development teams lack a shared understanding of how their codebase functions in full. It’s a vast amount of knowledge for even the most experienced engineers to maintain and share, let alone those who are new to the code.
Even when we manage to build code-based understanding, it’s almost immediately out of date. Developers are expected to constantly ship code against tight deadlines—all with attention to stringent quality and security requirements.
Development teams need a solution to drive efficient codebase onboarding to meet the day-to-day demands of today’s constantly evolving codebases; they need a single source of truth.
CodeSee Maps auto-syncing code diagrams help developers and teams visually understand how codebases work; a single source of truth designed to reduce friction in code understanding, with features supporting collaboration, documentation, and reviews.
