The easiest way to code with any LLM
We are on a mission to make building software feel like making music. Developers excel not when their work feels like a slog through a swamp of code and docs, but when it feels like strumming a guitar at a campfire, singing along to the radio, or experimenting with beats in GarageBand. We believe that large language models present a new opportunity to deliver on this vision. This is why we are creating a tool that allows anyone to slip into a flow state, to experience the lightness of never getting stuck, to continue.
Our starting point is an open-source IDE extension for VS Code and JetBrains, which is deeply customizable to help developers upgrade their current synchronous workflows with language models. But over time, asynchronous automation will be increasingly possible, a transition that will require an escape from the IDE. Continue is building this bridge, an engine for both types of automation which leverages context from across the software development lifecycle, captures and uses development data to improve, and exposes an SDK that lets others build on top.
We set impossible standards and don’t let them slip, holding each other accountable in an environment built on trust and kindness. This means deciding on the single most important problem for each of us to focus on and helping each other to make sure it gets solved.
Everyone on the team is expected to be a chef. Each of us needs something different to thrive, so we emphasize understanding ourselves and adapting to these unique styles. Though we get tired sometimes, we never stop running because we are in it for the long haul.
For now, we work together in-person in San Francisco, so that we can work side-by-side while iterating toward stronger product-market fit.
