CodeScene 2.8 released

We're proud to announce our 2.8 release of CodeScene on-premise!

Beyond Conway’s Law: Meet the Social Side of Your Code

1 December 2018

Watch Adam Tornhill's talk from Øredev 2018 on the social side of our code. This talk takes a behavioral view of version-control data combined with insights from social psychology to measure aspects of software development that we haven't been able to capture before. You learn how this information lets you detect modules with excess coordination needs, measure how well your architecture supports your organization, suggest and guide refactorings, as well as why Conway's law is an oversimplification.

Empear celebrates its 3 years anniversary

16 October 2018

Empear, the product company behind CodeScene, celebrates its 3 years anniversary this month. Empear is a bootstrapped startup so this is a significant milestone as roughly 30% of all startups fail in their first years. It all started in a basement -- literally -- as we decided to build a professional product around the ideas in Adam's previous book, Your Code As A Crime Scene. Read the full story from book to startup on our blog.

Empear scores gold!

28 September 2018

Just last week we got a beautiful certificate from UC! UC is Sweden's leading institute for credit ratings, and Empear lands in the highest category with its gold rating. This is definitely a sign that we are doing something right. Not bad for a bootstrapped startup, if we say so ourselves!
