Add CodeTogether to VS Code for pair programming from
anywhere. Great for remote teams, even when using different IDEs. CodeTogether is available for VS Code, IntelliJ and Eclipse.
You can host a collaborative session from any supported IDE, and participants can join from their preferred IDE or a browser.
Source is always end-to-end encrypted and
on-premises hosting with SSO integration is optionally available.
Host-based intelligence ensures everyone gets the language smarts needed for
capabilities such as content assist and validation, regardless of how they join the session.
Console and Terminal sharing ensures participants don’t miss out on extra information
like build output, or the ability to run tests and execute commands.
