During the live stream, you’ll see how Code With Me can be helpful for learning and teaching💡 Even if you are training with a different programming language, like Java or Python, you may want to save a spot for yourself. Why? We will observe the most common use cases, such as guided coding sessions, mentoring, pair programming, code reviews, and answer all of your questions.

Notable updates 

Let’s take a look at the most significant changes and fixes that we delivered for Code With Me 2022.2:

  1. We’ve redesigned the UI and renamed some of the menu actions.
  2. We’ve enabled TURN server support by default. This means that if we can’t connect the host and guest directly, we can use a TURN server to act as a relay.
  3. We have made Code With Me compatible with Android Studio Electric Eel. Download the latest update.
  4. The missing debug options are now supported.
  5. We fixed a few bugs so that icons are now displayed with no delay.
  6. The Gradle logs are now displayed correctly on the host’s machine.
  7. Source navigation in the Run tool window works as expected.
