CodeTogether’s unique approach to remote pair programming makes it as intuitive as pairing on the same machine—minus arguments over keyboard control.

“CodeTogether’s unique approach to remote pair programming makes it as intuitive as pairing on the same machine—minus arguments over keyboard control,” said Todd Williams, Vice President of Technology at Genuitec. CodeTogether 2.0 brings major improvements to its already robust collaborative coding capabilities, including simultaneous editing and support for multiple developer groups.

Control flow enhancements in this release allow developers to code at will, organically. Whether coding alone or in a team of 10, no time is wasted with hotkeys, dialogs or control requests. If developers would like to pursue their own investigation or code alone, they can flip a switch to do so. Multiple developers, or groups of developers, can be editing simultaneously in a session, naturally switching between driver and navigator roles, resulting in a truly powerful remote working environment.

“The new IDE Experience feature allows developers to use their preferred IDE’s key bindings and look and feel for a smoother transition to coding in the browser,” said Brian Fernandes, Genuitec’s Customer Evangelist. “We wanted developers to feel at home, even as they code in a completely different environment, and believe having a familiar set of key bindings is a critical step in that direction.”

This release continues to improve IDE support—with a special focus on IntelliJ, it provides improved content assist, participant annotations, and supports projects with multiple modules/content roots. Across IDEs, it adds support for quick fixes, additional languages and structured outlines. Validation is now more reliable, and dozens of fixes have been included to further improve the remote coding experience.

Since version 1.2, CodeTogether has been end-to-end encrypted, making it impossible for anyone outside the shared session to access source code. With this release, for even greater control over source access, enterprise customers can now deploy private instances of CodeTogether behind the firewall. This added option provides a unique offering for enterprises as the only pair programming solution for desktop IDEs that is both heterogeneous and able to run fully on-premises.

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Genuitec continues to delay the monetization of premium level features in its cloud based SaaS offering - all CodeTogether features are currently available free of cost. CodeTogether will always have a free usage tier for all users.
