Paircast creates a markdown transcript of the code developers write and the things they say during their session.
Get qualitative and quantitative data that helps you understand developers.
Understand how changes you make affect your developer experience. Learn what to fix from developers themselves.
“I am so glad we decided to do this. Super valuable and we want to test again once we've made changes.”
Jeff DomkeHead of Product, Blockstack
“It's incredible how many issues and opportunities developer testing found. We will be in much better shape soon.”
David BloomGM, Sterling Talent Solutions
“Developer testing is exactly what we needed. We identified blind spots in our developer sign-up and navigation and were able to make changes immediately.”

How does the risk-free trial work?
We test with a single developer and send you the result. If it's not what you're looking for, we'll refund you entirely. See how the system works and get your first recording and feedback without any commitment.
What is a "Hello World?"
A "Hello World" is a programmer exercise that demonstrates a setup procedure. Usually, this means outputting the text "hello world" to demonstrate that the system has been set up and works.
Your product's "Hello World" is the point at which you consider your developer tool "setup." Usually this means the developer has created an account, copied their API keys, and run an example project. This demonstrates they have an understanding of your product.
What other kind of content can you test?
We can test "hello worlds," getting started, tutorials, documentation references, blog posts, GitHub readmes. If it looks like developer instructions, we can test it.
What is a "developer product"?
Developer products are APIs, SDKs, as well as desktop software, clients, etc. We have testing VMs, database software, mobile and web SDKS. Code is best, but we can test anything.
Where do you find developers?
We hire developers from the United States who speak English. We recruit from our Developer Community, DevPort, and online freelancing websites. Developers are of entry and intermediate skill level and we pay competitive rates to make sure we have the developers' attention. Most developers are ecstatic to make money by working with a new service, and love speaking their mind!
Why do you test with 12 developers?
We recommend 12 developers to start, as it provides a large enough sample size to begin drawing quantitative conclusions, but small enough to be economical.
What if I want a shorter or longer test?
We recommend 1 hour as a starting point. Especially difficult tests may require 2-hours. If this happens, we'll offer you a 2-hour upgrade.
Can I specify a specific skill for developers?
You can supply both experience requirements during HelloWorld setup. We do not test on senior or expert level developers. Specialized skillsets may incur an additional cost.
