The Coder Team


Your citizenry is demanding greater access to online and automated services. You have access to more data than ever before to drive your policies and efforts. The need to innovate has never been greater. Increased efficiency isn’t just a catchphrase — it’s a business requirement.

Don’t let standing up software development and data analysis environments be a bottleneck that keeps your agency from fulfilling its mission.

Coder moves software development to the cloud, delivering consistent, secure, and performant environments to development teams.

Coder provisions development environments on your organization’s infrastructure that can be accessed securely from any device with a browser, even in air-gapped deployments. Each development environment is created from a predefined image, eliminating installation and setup overhead.

Coder automates, powers, and secures the development environment letting your engineers focus on what’s important: writing code and analyzing data.

Leverage the Power of the Cloud Coder runs on Kubernetes and is platform and infrastructure agnostic. Run it in the cloud using AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, or other platforms. Or if your agency isn’t quite cloud-ready or policies prohibit, use your own infrastructure.

Reduce Security Risks Source code and development actions are centralized to mitigate risk. Your code and data stay where they belong, secured on the cluster or in authorized repositories — not on individuals’ laptops. Coder even works seamlessly within the most restrictive air-gapped environments, providing productivity in zero-trust environments for developers and data analysts.

Stay Productive During a Crisis Whether your team is facing a forced evacuation due to a mass weather event or a stay-at-home mandate, essential government services must continue to operate. With Coder, your developers can work safely from wherever they are through a browser. Enable secure software development from anywhere, on any device, in any situation.

Increase Efficiency and Save Time and Money Most developers spend between 2–8 hours, and sometimes more, setting up a new dev environment and they do so multiple times a year.* With Coder, it takes seconds, significantly reducing onboarding time. Coder Enterprise automates, powers, and secures the development environment, letting your engineers focus on what’s important: writing code.

Collaborate across Agencies and Departments Coder helps enable collaboration. Environments are created from version-controlled, team-defined Docker images. They are provisioned through the dashboard and orchestrated by Kubernetes, ensuring that everyone on the team is using the same configurations and is up-to-date on the latest patches and fixes.

Manage Users and Audit Centrally Users are managed from the dashboard. Easily create teams to enable collaboration. Extensive auditing allows security reviewers to identify insider threats quickly.

Use the Right Tools for the Job Coder provides multi-editor support allowing developers and data scientists the freedom to use the IDEs they already know and love, including VSCode, Jupyter Notebook, IntelliJ, Eclipse, and PyCharm, all accessible through the browser. It also allows for advanced integrations into GitLab, BitBucket, GitHub, and more.

Support Training and Education Coder Empowers training at scale. Students spend time learning how to code, not struggling to build their environments. Instructors spend time teaching, not troubleshooting students’ device configurations.
