Code Visualization to Github By Nordic DevOps Startup
Softagram, a Nordic startup, wants to change over 30 million GitHub developers' lives by offering an alternative way of understanding the code.

PALO ALTO, Calif. - April 1, 2019 - eTradeWire -- Softagram brings visual presentation to GitHub's most used process, the pull request (over 70 million done during the last 12 months with 40% YoY growth!). Automatic code change visualization is a unique approach to improving the code quality and review process.

Softagram's approach changes the pull request process by providing a machine-created, but human-readable, visualization of the code and code changes. Instead of reading hundreds of lines of text, it is now possible to start the code review with one simple picture. "Over 65% of people are foremost visual learners. A graph or picture is understood thousands of times faster than text, and we are enabling that simple performance boost to software development," said Tommi, CEO of Softagram.

Ville Laitila, CTO and founder of Softagram, explained that, for the first time, the pull request reviewer can focus first on the most important matter. "The reviewer can see in one picture whether the implementation was done in the correct location, utilizing correct internal and external elements, and not violating any dependency rules."

"Providing the Softagram app directly to GitHub Marketplace allows us to reach millions of developers in the easiest possible way," said Tommi when asked why the company focuses on GitHub. "If you consider that two peer developers are reviewing every pull request, there are over half a million reviews done on GitHub every workday!"

Softagram is now available on GitHub Marketplace. The Softagram app can be activated at The visual report will appear automatically in the pull request comments right after the pull request has been made. Softagram offers a free trial and also an enterprise solution for GitHub enterprise customers.
