Modern code development consists of a complicated set of components, including different microservices running in different places. It’s a reality that is often referred to as “spaghetti code” given how tangled and intermingled the different strands of development can be.
In 2019, San Francisco-based CodeSee got started as an effort to help developers begin to untangle some of that spaghetti code using its code visibility platform.

“With our enterprise version we’re adding an additional layer of visibility to visualize the service layer,” Shanea Leven, founder and CEO, told VentureBeat. “We’re also providing capabilities to automate an understanding of code, throughout the development process.”
MetaBeat will bring together thought leaders to give guidance on how metaverse technology will transform the way all industries communicate and do business on October 4 in San Francisco, CA.
Code visibility: From open-source to the enterprise
Though CodeSee is not currently open source (but Leven has future plans to open source-license elements of CodeSee), it is having an impact on helping the open-source community.
“We wanted to understand and help developers contribute to open source and the biggest barrier to entry in almost any open-source project is onboarding and understanding the codebase,” Leven said.
