Karl Clement

Co-Founder of Codex (https://usecodex.com). "Fullstack" kind of guy. Obsessed with startups, software and engineering, I mostly like to build stuff. As an engineer my focus is primarily on modern micro-service architectures, Javascript SPAs, REST/GraphQL APIs, high-traffic applications as well as DevOps (the whole stack). As an entrepreneur, I started building companies when I was 14 and never looked back.

Saumil Patel

I am the co-founder and CEO of Squire AI. Squire AI helps engineering teams merge PRs quickly by providing reviews and implementing feedback. Previously, as a Partner at Dignified, I helped build software at businesses ranging from startups to Fortune 250 enterprises. I have also contributed to numerous other organizations as a CTO, Software Engineer, Product Lead, and Engineering Lead. When I'm not working, I'm experimenting in the kitchen, reading a book, gaming, or walking with my dog Moch

Company Launches

What is Codex?

Codex is a VS Code extension that allows any engineer to attach comments, questions, notes or any kind of content to specific lines of code. This context follows your code as your team continues to build. Help your team understand your code base at a deeper level.

Why us?

Karl Clement, Saumil Patel and Brandon Waselnuk have been working together for 8 years now shipping over 50 products across the VC fund they worked at, their own agency, and their own projects. They’ve seen this problem constantly and decided to do something about it.

The problem:

The problem space we’re working on is collaborating on code, passive documentation through code block level context, onboarding and offboarding engineers into a code base. We found this problem on pretty much every software team we’ve worked on - you open a file and don’t know how something runs and have to start asking in #devops chats which leads you on a goose chase to find the engineer that remembers how the monolith runs. It stinks, and when you’re done you move on and finish your work, you don’t really capture everything you learned in DMs and leave it for other team members to learn from.

The solution:

We’ve created an extension for VS Code to allow any engineer to attach their internal knowledge to specific files or lines of code and share it with the rest of the team.

  • Onboard or offboard engineers from your code base 10x faster.
  • Take notes while you code and help your team understand how it was built.
  • Ask the right person a question, without disturbing their flow.
  • Share a direct link to a code block in VS Code instead of sending screenshots.

How you can help:

Your support means the world to us. Here are some things we’d love:

  • Introductions to remote or hybrid engineering teams
  • Shoutouts on Twitter, Tiktok or whatever is cool these days.
  • Use Codex today! We can use all the feedback we can get :)
