Continuous documentation startup, Swimm, today announced the launch of an open beta, granting free access to any team that wants to use the platform. Through the use of Swimm’s continuous documentation platform, organizations can simplify the process of creating, finding, and maintaining relevant documentation as part of existing development workflows.
Swimm ensures that documentation is up to date by introducing “live” snippets that automatically sync with changes to the code base. Additionally, the platform provides users with access to documentation such as tutorials, guides, and walkthroughs in a secure web application.
In addition, Swimm announced a $ 27.6 million Series A financing round. This round brings Swimm’s total funding to $ 33.3 million and was led by Insight Partners with participation from Dawn. Capital as well as existing seed investors Pitango First and TAU Ventures.
Python in the November release of Visual Studio Code
