IBM developerWorks (dW) code can now be searched by millions of Koders users, significantly increasing the reach of and access to dW resources.


By opening up dW resources to Koders users IBM once again demonstrates market leadership and innovation

Koders™ Inc., the leader in open source and enterprise code search, today announced it has been selected to search source code from developerWorks, IBM's premier technical resource for software developers. The inclusion of developerWorks code in the Koders open source index provides millions of Koders users with an additional resource and helps IBM to reach a previously untapped community of developers who are seeking reusable code for their projects and examples of existing solutions to programming challenges.

IBM developerWorks partnered with Koders because of Koders' experience indexing large code bases in multiple version control repositories. The primary goal at dW is to empower developers with the resources they need to build and deploy applications across heterogeneous systems, and Koders is a critical component of this distribution strategy.

"By opening up dW resources to Koders users IBM once again demonstrates market leadership and innovation", said Darren Rush, CEO of Koders. "We are honored that IBM selected Koders to search the developerWorks code and we look forward to helping IBM contribute to the open source community". All of the dW code resources are now available from Koders, including high-profile projects such as End-to-end Ajax Application Development, Cook up Web Sites Fast With CakePHP, Ajax and XML: Five Common Ajax Patterns, and ClearCase: The Ten Best Scripts.

With the addition of IBM dW code, the Koders open source index now includes well over 700 million lines of high-value code aggregated from public repositories, corporate developer networks, and projects contributed by individual programmers. Koders recently upgraded its core search technology and navigation to help software developers find more relevant and reusable code; in addition to offering optional programming language and license filters, Koders search results are automatically parsed so that users may easily find interface, class and method definitions that address their immediate needs. Additional developer tools available from Koders include free IDE plugins for Visual Studio and Eclipse, free code search widgets that can search individual open source projects, and the Koders Pro Edition for individual developers and teams.
