Hello all, I’m a YC founder and serial entrepreneur. My prior 3 companies have all had something to do with the future of work in general, so I’ve taken those learnings over the last 20+ years and tried to apply it to improving developer collaboration with my latest startup. I’m also a hobbyist woodworker and recently completed a two-story treehouse in our back yard with the help of my family; mostly my wife and now-16-year-old son.
Welcome @Peter Pezaris👋🏼. Can you share more info about how your latest startup is trying to improve developer collaboration 🙂

sure; if we think about how we communicate most frequently, we have special-purpose tools for each form of communication: telegram, slack, imessage, instagram, discord — each has a purpose and a unique set of features to serve it’s audience.to date, code editors (vscode, jetbrains, etc) have not had a simple capability to make it as easy to discuss code as it is, for example, to discuss a sentence in a google doc.my current company puts your developer collaboration tools — including slack/teams, jira/trello/etc, and github/gitlab, into today’s most popular editors so that you can apply those experiences to the most important primitive to a developer: code.

very interesting idea Peter!

Interesting indeed. What’s the status of the startup? Is there a beta that I can try or a landing page available?

we’re a series A company and our product is live. i assume it’s okay to share the url here? codestream.com
This is really cool. I especially appreciate the master plan post - would be happy to chat.
I did find the experience of context-switching cumbersome in my last job.. particularly how disconnected our tech docs were from our actual code.And welcome! 🙂
hi Peter! i’d love to talk sometime. Just started sketching a live-data view for vscode in my head on the drive home today, and I had a conversation with an old business partner about the necessity of something like codestream a few weeks ago. Great to see it exists!
