So what is the catch? Why is it free? How are they able to pay for all their developers? https://kite.com/careers/ It does say, "Kite runs locally. Your code is private." However, I'm still left wondering how they are paying for their developers. My guess is that they're selling analytics or they just have a bunch of investors and are trying to build a team to pivot eventually and do something else that makes money eventually.
