Is there a little code snippet that is just driving you crazy? Or would you like a detailed collaborative session even before you dive in? There are different ways of sharing your code to get another developer to get involved. Read on for more!

Simply Share with Slack

So how can you share your code? One easy way is to use Slack, your good ol’ teamwork app. You might already be using it on a daily basis to communicate with your team, but if you’re copying and pasting from Eclipse into Slack, you evidently haven’t heard of our Code Sharing for Slack Integration solution, which allows you to share and discuss code snippets easily. You can view them right there in Slack, or open them from within your IDE. You also get to decide how many pairs of eyes are allowed: share your code in an individual or a group private message, or even put it in a specific channel for all to view. Click on the code sharing link above to see how this works. Slack integration is available in MyEclipse, Webclipse, and Angular IDE.

Collaborative Coding with CodeTogether

We didn’t stop with this tool, though, and are getting ready to fully roll out our latest offering, CodeTogether. Just as Google Docs did wonders for document sharing, CodeTogether is here to revolutionize collaborative coding. We are taking code sharing to a completely new level because now there is no longer a need to send your code and wait for response – instead, the submitter and the reviewer can be working together in real time regardless of  the distance between them. Just picture it: a junior developer based in Bangladesh submitting some code to be reviewed by his/her supervisors in Venezuela, a university professor showing how to solve some coding issues to his/her students, or a recruiter who wishes to see how a potential employee could collaborate on a problem at hand.

It’s a true two-way communication channel, and, best of all – you could be using your favorite editor or IDE to make immediate edits, as the session progresses. In addition, it’s completely secure! Being a cloud IDE without a cloud workspace, CodeTogether allows you to store your code in the location of your choice. Our end-to-end encryption will ensure it’s only seen by the authorized sets of eyes.

The Choice is Yours

Still not sure which tool to use? If you need help with a small piece of code, and you have the time to wait for a response, then Slack will work just fine, but if you need a more collaborate experience with a team-mate, or perhaps the entire team, then CodeTogether is the optimal solution, already available in in private beta.
