Increased Coding Efficiency – 20% reduction in coding time
Protected IP – Never lose creative gems should a valued developer leave your team
Improved Onboarding – Flatten the learning curve by providing contextually validated content
Sunnyvale, CA, 2012 – Over a strong Italian coffee, Cristiano and Michele, PhDs and seasoned developers, decided to tackle a problem plaguing software coders everywhere... "How do we stop re-inventing the wheel?" Every developer is familiar with the problem.
Snippets, the elemental building blocks of source code, have never been easily documentable and searchable – a situation forcing coders to either use inefficient means to search for appropriate snippets OR recreate the snippet from scratch. Cristiano and Michele set out to solve the problem rather than simply live with it. Many, many hours of brainstorming, problem-solving, and development followed.
So was born, Snip2Code, a maximally efficient, collaborative platform painstakingly designed to catalogue, search, and share snippets. Key to these innovators’ solution, a powerful semantic search engine utilizing system-generated and user-generated contextual tags ensuring the best possible snippet for a given coding task. No more rework. No more clunky and unproductive searches.
Deployed first as a free tool for the open source developer community, Snip2Code has become the go-to platform where developers across the globe access the world’s largest database of individual snippets. As the utility of the platform became known, Cristiano and Michele turned their attention toward solving the same problem for software companies and proprietary development shops. Snip2Code now operates in development organizations across the world.
