Your Much Loved macOS Linux Terminal Needs An Upgrade | Zach Lloyd, Warp


If you are a developer, you probably live in a terminal. This is one of the most powerful and widely used tools. However, when was the last time you saw a new feature or functionality added to the terminal? 600 BC? That’s going to change.

Warp, founded in 2020, focuses on rebuilding products that developers use every day. Their first product to go to market is a reinvention of the terminal, which has not been redesigned much in the past 40 years. The current tool is difficult to learn and use, particularly for new developers. Warp aims to change that, making it more collaborative and boosting developer productivity.

“We see a big opportunity, if we can make a version of the terminal that brings its power to a much wider range of developers to do something that is meaningful and impacts developer productivity,” says Zach Lloyd, Founder and CEO of Warp, on this episode of TFiR Let’s Talk.

Key highlights from this video interview are:

  • Why does Lloyd feel that the terminal is due for an ‘upgrade’ and makeover?
  • Terminal is where all team members work; however, it doesn’t have any collaborative feature. Lloyd wants to change that and enable a much better collaboration within and among team members.
  • Lloyd discusses the key differences between their reinvented terminal and the normal one and what the main features of their product are.
  • He also talks about the business model around Warp.
