Waltham, MA, November 18, 2009 – Telerik, the leading vendor of development tools and user interface components for .NET, today announced the release of its JustCode add-in for Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 and 2008. A fast, agile, multi-language solution, JustCode is designed to increase developer productivity through real-time code analysis, unobtrusive code navigation, and smart refactoring.
“Enhancing our portfolio with an indispensible productivity tool like JustCode marks another milestone in our efforts to minimize development complexity and coding time for .NET developers,” said Hristo Kosev, Telerik CTO. “When working with large solutions, peak performance is essential; add-ins that slow Visual Studio are intolerable. We saw the need for a tool that improves productivity without compromising performance and designed JustCode to work for developers without infringing on Visual Studio’s operational speed. We believe that JustCode will be a valuable part of every developer .NET toolbox.“
JustCode’s greatest benefits lie within its solution-wide analysis module. The module works incrementally in a separate background process, allowing it to work rapidly while leaving Visual Studio’s processes unaffected by analysis tasks. As a result, Visual Studio remains responsive and unhindered by JustCode during editing.
By introducing a robust set of powerful features to Visual Studio, including coding assistance, code navigation, on-the-fly error highlighting, quick error correction and a growing catalog of helpful refactorings, JustCode increases developer productivity levels. All features can be accessed unobtrusively with minimal dialog use, facilitating quick and easy code modification without leaving the keyboard.
Originally developed by software development and consulting firm, Omnicore, JustCode was acquired by Telerik in 2009. Omnicore’s company founders, who performed doctoral research in the area of code analysis, have since joined Telerik as part of its ongoing JustCode product development team.
