  1. Question for you! • How do you currently search for

    open source code? • How do you search for private code? • How do you get code intelligence outside of your local editor?
  2. Laravel - An artisan’s framework • A Full Stack PHP

    Framework • An API Backend • A Vibrant and powerful community • Plethora of developer tools e.g Nova, Cashier, Forge, Envoyer, Valet, Telescope, Scout, Telescope, Sanctum, etc • Educational Platforms e.g Laracasts.com, dailylaravel.com, laravel.io etc
  3. What’s your Sourcegraph Temperature? • I’ve never heard of it.

    • I’ve heard of it but don’t understand it. • I understand it, but I don’t see how it’s useful. • I see how it could be fun for senior developers, but not for me. • It’s becoming more useful for me. • I use it all the time. • I could not imagine life without it. • Seriously, people are living without it? How?
  4. What is Sourcegraph’s Value To You? • Search over 2.1M

    open source & public repositories across GitHub & Gitlab. • Search private code across several repositories • Precise code intelligence • Automation of large scale code changes via Batch changes. • Code monitoring • Code insights (still in beta)
  5. Recap: Why you need Sourcegraph? • Developer velocity - Help

    all your developers to move fast. With code intelligence & great search, code discovery is a walk in the park. You don’t need to keep cloning repos to effectively search through them! • Onboarding new developers to a codebase - The faster developers can understand your massive codebase, the better. • Codebase refactors (batch changes) - as codebase grows, you need to refactor the codebase more intelligently.
