The CodeTogether Story
At Genuitec, we are a fully distributed software company that employs developers from around the globe. After years of using screen sharing for collaborative coding, we decided there had to be a better way. When we couldn’t find a good solution, we decided to fill the need ourselves.
In early 2020, we released a preview of CodeTogether and the response was amazing! The original plan was to create a go-to tool with an organic feel that made it simple to join in a pair programming session with just a browser. Thanks to feedback received from our incredible users, we’ve continued to grow the product into a more robust tool, adding major features like end-to-end encryption, an on-premises version, and IDE to IDE support across multiple IDEs.
CodeTogether is now an invaluable resource in our own workflow. We realize that your team might have its own workflow patterns and your input could provide invaluable insight. Our hope is that you share our excitement about this new technology and will join our Gitter Community or visit our Issue Tracker and share your ideas on CodeTogether features that you would like to see.

Genuitec has a strong history of identifying developer needs and finding solutions. From the Fortune 500 company using MyEclipse for enterprise development, to the independent contractor who just wanted a fabulous dark theme and discovered DevStyle (the #1 Eclipse plugin), we are proud to have improved workflow for so many of our fellow developers. We are excited to add CodeTogether to our product portfolio, which also includes CodeMix for web development in Eclipse, and Secure Delivery Center for simple and secure delivery of perfectly configured IDEs. If you have questions about CodeTogether or any Genuitec product, we would love to hear from you.
“This tool addresses the shortcomings that Genuitec found in traditional collaborative developer solutions, such as screen sharing. A central issue with such tools is to ensure that collaborations are seamless and don’t hinder developers.“
