💼 Opportunities
 
🔮 Our Analysis
Though the terminal evolved out of an era before graphical user interfaces, it hasn’t become obsolete. In fact, take it from these computer science students and software engineers, it would be practically impossible to remove the terminal from a programmer’s workflow. But while the terminal is most definitely not an outdated tool, using one can often feel like it. Simple tasks like looking through a command’s output or finding the right command often mean looking through a disorganized wall of text. Warp makes these and other outdated aspects of the terminal pleasant to work with. Beyond the clean UI, it brings functional quality-of-life improvements to the table as well. For example, it can notify you when a command has finished running, meaning no more switching between tabs to check progress. Moreover, it brings new features to the CLI, most notably with its collaboration-focused enhancements, making Warp a powerful tool for the enterprise market. In a world that can’t get away from terminals, we believe Warp can become an indispensable tool.
