"As a service it has a great personal feel, both from the EditMe staff and its external community."

MetaCalculus is described as a paradigm of mathematical modeling and automatic programming, above and beyond the level of calculus. It employs calculus search engines under the hood in a recursive harness of nested automatic differentiation to solve inverse problems in nested subroutines. For those of us who don't have a Ph.D in math, they are a small software company that makes highly advanced math software for use in higher education, research and the industrial sciences. 

Frank Germano, COO, took some time to tell us about how they're using EditMe internally at MetaCalculus.

Why do you use EditMe?

We are using EditMe to support the internal collaboration between 7 scientific modellers and programmers building a Cloud-based computing service. We also plan to use EditMe as a support site for the product testing, and on into its commercial phase.

How did you do it before using EditMe?

This is a new company, and we have been using EditMe from the beginning.

What's your favorite thing about EditMe?

No infrastructure headaches; it's all set-up. It is extensible by technical people. As a service it has a great personal feel, both from the EditMe staff and its external community.

What would make the experience better for you?

It may well exist, but I don't read anything until I have to. I would like to see a summary view of the functionality. Or maybe a sample book of ideas. 

How do you describe EditMe to friends and colleagues?

All set up and ready to go. Start simple and keep going.
