Don't want to host CodeScene yourself?

In addition to the on-premise version, we provide a cloud version of CodeScene. Go to and sign in with GitHub to get started. CodeScene Cloud is currently in alpha, meaning that all features are not yet available. Please have a look at our Roadmap for more information.
