Service 1: Code Health Check Audit

For new acquisitions, code validation, or simply wanting to get a code health check. 

This quick one week engagement helps organizations understand the status of their code quality, identify areas of greatest concern, and provides a roadmap to help guide critical next steps.  

"Automated tools can identify areas of complexity. But only an expert can figure out the source of that complexity, and how to fix it."

Service 2: Deep Dive (code, process, and people)

Sometimes the source of code complexity starts in the product itself. Unnecessary features and complex interfaces lead to code that is equally complex and hard to maintain. 

For organizations wanting a fuller picture of how to move their product forward, this three to four week onsite engagement helps organizations rapidly increase their code quality, process, and team efficiency. This style of code review prepares a team for long term, high-speed growth, and scalability.

“ We had a great nucleus of talent that was missing out on senior mentorship around tools and best practices. Working with thoughtbot not only activated the potential within the team, it accelerated it. ”
