Come and have coffee with Codebots Founder, Dr. Eban Escott and hear his incredible tales!
Codebots is on a mission to help humans team up with code-writing bots to design, build and launch awesome software to the cloud. Codebots is a Brisbane-based technology startup taking on the global giants to cement themselves as a major player in the billion dollar low-code industry. On the platform, 92% (on average) of the software’s code is written by a bot and the remaining 8% is completed by a human. Collaborating with a codebot means quicker software delivery times, higher quality applications but most importantly, the team spends less time coding and more time creating.
The company began with the simple question: “What if creating software didn’t have to be so hard?” On his quest to find an answer, founder Eban Escott’s research lead to the creation of the patent-pending technology that underpins the platform. Not willing to buy into the ‘Silicon Valley or bust’ concept, Eban kept the team local, believing that a world class product doesn’t have geographic barriers. Four years, one PhD and 35 employees later, Codebots is preparing for launch!
Eban is the co-founder of Codebots. He has over 20 years experience working as an IT professional in organisations ranging from startups to large businesses. He is a strong believer in applying modern startup methodologies, such as agile and lean. Dr Escott received his PhD from The University of Queensland in 2013. His thesis, 'A model-driven approach to developing and testing web applications' was the result of his passion for improving software engineering processes. This research underpins the Codebots technology.
