Supercharging Developer Productivity With Advanced Code Search
Google & Facebook Engineers are able to search over their gargantuan codebase using an internal code search engine. The search engine accelerates the ability of their developers (both old & new) to understand any part of their codebase & start contributing immediately! What about the rest of us?

In this talk, I'll walk through the different types of code search, tools & software, and advanced tips & tricks to navigate any type of codebase easily. With the advent of large code repositories and sophisticated search capabilities, code search is increasingly becoming a key software development activity. Every developer in the world that spends an insane amount of time reading rather than writing code should have access to the best code search tools that amplifies their productivity. The audience will walk away with everything they need to confidently onboard, navigate & understand any small, medium-sized and daunting codebase.
