Dunedin startup company Codelingo is helping the world solve a $1 trillion problem. The company is launching an app this week that scans computer software code for errors and automatically corrects them. Jesse Meek, Codelingo CEO and founder, said the company has been tackling a major worldwide coding issue for the past two years, and has now come up with a tool to solve it. "When a team of coders manually eyeball thousands of lines of code for something slightly out of place, we can end up with inconsistent results. Our app automatically picks up patterns." The app project has been supported by Enterprise Dunedin business advisor Ross Grey through the Regional Business Partnership programme. Ross helped Jesse apply for Callaghan Innovation grants for research and development. "Dunedin’s supportive environment with accessible mentoring and coaching from knowledgeable business leaders, and a local investment pool, have helped Codelingo get to the stage where we are being taken seriously internationally," Jesse said.
