Brought to you by the creator of FirePHP
You are a passionate & hard working developer. You deserve a tool to leverage your time and mind.

Christoph Dorn has been working hard to make this a reality. DeveloperCompanion is his answer to years of yearning for a unified methodology and open toolsuite that addresses some fundamental issues in software development.

You need a tool you can incrementally integrate to provide you with deep internal application intelligence and control during development and after deployment. If it can help get your work done easier by integrating with your favorite software development tools you are excited.

DeveloperCompanion and the underlying technologies are long-term projects with a multi-year roll-out. The 1.0 milestone is the result of several years of work and the beginning to making the process of working with open source software more efficient and accessible.
