Many organizations use streaming-based remote desktops to enhance security and simplify workstation management. These solutions introduce typing latency that hampers engineers, leaving technical leadership with a dilemma: unhappy engineers or risky software development.

Coder centralizes developer workspaces onto your infrastructure, offering the security and management benefits of remote desktops. We directly integrate with popular IDEs, making latency imperceptible even though all the work is happening in a remote environment.

Remote workspaces are better for engineers

Remote workspaces take advantage of powerful server resources. Our customers spend less time waiting and more time creating.

Coder workspaces are updated in lockstep, so there's no more “it works on my machine”.

Eliminate waiting and breaking, stay in flow, and code at the speed of thought.

code-server: the heart of Coder

code-server is the primary open source project we maintain. It allows developers to use a browser to access remote dev environments running VS Code. Coder builds upon the success of code-server and adds features designed for enterprise teams including support for additional IDEs and advanced security features.
