JetBrains Product Insight: Code With Me
Blog|by Leanne Bevan|24 January 2022
This blog series is back, and this time we spoke to Kirill Skrygan, the Code With Me Team Lead at JetBrains, to learn more about the Code With Me collaboration tool. Here’s what we found out:
What is Code With Me?
Code With Me is a remote collaboration tool allowing multiple users remotely and collaboratively to use IDE in various scenarios: development, debugging, mentoring, making code reviews, etc.
Who is Code With Me for?
For professional developers and hobbyists, students, mentors, classrooms and basically all people who want to do collaboration programming.
Why should people use Code With Me?
It gives you a lot of advantages when compared with other collaboration tools:
- Code With Me is personalised with each guests settings and UI, so each user would have their own keymaps, UI themes, settings they get used to
- Code With Me is asynchronous, so no more lags typically for the other Remote Desktop-based solutions
- Code With Me has a lot of collaboration features like ‘Follow Me’, ‘Full sync Mode’, it has built-in voice calls and video conferences, you can even share a screen via Code With Me
- Code With Me give a remote user native Intellij Idea experience offering its famously known editor with code completion, quick fixes, inspections, type assistance and other features
What is your favourite Code With Me feature and why?
My favourite feature is just being able to use an Intellij editor when collaborating with the remote host. It is so cool to have access to all these features, without having the source code, by just joining the session!
Do you have any tips or tricks?
-Check our ‘Force others to follow you’ feature. If you are doing mob programming with your close colleagues, it might save time: call it and all the other guests instantly will follow you, so you can start showing something to them.
What resources do you recommend we view?
I recommend taking a look at the Code With Me help guide.
Anything else we should know about Code With Me?
If you don’t need any collaboration, but rather need remote access to your server machine with your source code – please take a look at JetBrains Gateway. This is our solution specifically created for the Remote Development scenario.
