Nowadays code and artificial intelligence are at the center of everything, but there are still few effective solutions combining code and AI. We believe that the power of artificial intelligence on code and great developer experience can trigger an industrial revolution for the software engineering industry.


Our idea is based on this observation. We are developing an AI that will support all developers in their daily work. The 1st skill we are giving to our AI is the ability to generate unit tests in JavaScript, TypeScript and Python with a few clicks in VSCode. The goal is to help developers produce great code, faster, and most importantly, to focus on what they love most: coding.


In the longer term, the ambition is to reduce the time spent by developers on time-consuming tasks with low direct business value: writing tests, refacto, reading code, documentation ...


Our goal for 2021 is to find the Product market fit with our corporate clients (Large software publishers and other industries, to carry out pilot projects, to generate money and to embark on the scale phase.


Our project is particularly challenging and requires talented, ambitious and humble people, able to question themselves and bring new ideas to the table in order to build a unique technology that does not yet exist.
