Producing great applications and services that drive business innovation requires modern development and delivery processes. With many organizations embracing DevSecOps and agile processes to drive faster releases of new features and updates, any weak link in your development process can cause delays and could cost your company market share.

Your development teams have enough to worry about. Setting up new dev environments shouldn’t be on their radar. But you, as an enterprise also need to maintain security. Coder now provides a solution that enables you to do both — even when your developers are working remotely.

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 you prefer, use your own on-premises 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, your business 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. Senior developers won’t have to waste time helping junior developers setup their environment configurations. Coder automates, powers, and secures the development environment, letting your engineers focus on what’s important: writing code.

Enforce Consistency Where it Matters, Allow Individuality Where it Doesn’t 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. Make “It works on my machine” a thing of the past. Individuals’ customizations are persisted across updates, however, allowing developers to use their own preferred plugins, etc.

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.
