You may have seen last Monday’s announcement that Kitchener-based bitHound has taken $2 million in investment, led by Michael Wekerle. Monday afternoon I dropped by bitHound’s offices to meet with two of bitHound’s co-founders Dan Silivestru and Gord Tanner, and find out what all the excitement was about.
bitHound’s value proposition is pretty simple. To quote from bitHound’s cofounder and CEO, Dan Silivestru:
“It’s not hard to write code. But it is hard to write high-quality, maintainable software. Our goal is to become a trusted member of a development team, providing valuable insights and actionable recommendations leading to great software.”
The demo I saw was still pretty early stage, but it made it very clear the ambitions of the company. Through code analysis, they want to provide a roadmap for a software solution’s quality to both developers and management.
Lofty goals, but if achieved, immensely valuable.
