Coder for the Public Sector

Support the mission with cloud developer workspaces

Coder moves developer workspaces to your cloud and centralizes their creation and management. Secure your DevSecOps pipeline while keeping developers in flow with the power of the cloud and superior developer experience.


Coder is used by some of the most security-conscious agencies in the federal government and is authorized for use in several highly secured environments within the Department of Defense.

State and local

Your citizenry is demanding greater access to online and automated services. Accelerate your software development process with Coder by removing the obstacles that keep your developers from writing code.


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.

The developer platform for your software factory

By moving developer workspaces to the cloud and automating their configuration and creation, Coder lets your developers focus on their mission, writing code, eliminating distractions like environment configuration.

Zero trust and air gap ready

Coder works seamlessly within the most restrictive air-gapped environments. Move dev environments to the cloud and simplify zero-trust implementation by keeping code off of laptops.

  • Pull deployment resources into your air-gapped environment
  • Restrict developers to whitelisted IDE extensions
Architecture layers

Reduce common vulnerabilities and exposures

Harden your Docker images to your agency’s exact requirements. Updates to the images can be pushed to environments created from those images, ensuring all developers are using the most secure version.

  • Scan images for compliance
  • Restrict access to approved images

Come learn about GitLab at Dark Wolf along with pizza, beer, and a good time! GitLab’s value is in centralizing the SDLC into a single system but the creative part (software development) where business value is created is outside the scope of GitLab. Coder fits that niche by meeting developers where they are and enabling them to spend more time working and less time fussing with dependencies. It also uses containers in a similar way to GitLab CI which means developers can use the same methods they’re comfortable with for building and refining coder workspace images as they do with their build and test automation. Event will be held in person and virtually.


Automation and DevOps experts from across the country will convene for three days of learning, sharing, and networking with other DevOps and Automation professionals. Come watch Coder's Thomas Hughes deliver his invited presentation "Bringing DevSecOps to the Developer Workspace" on Wednesday (Nov. 3) at 2:00 p.m.


Bringing together experts and innovators from the military, industry, government, and academia to collaborate and share insights. Meet with Coder at the "Coffee Talk" session.

Coder is a cloud native offering that runs its control plane as well as workspaces on top of Kubernetes, so it should work on any Kubernetes cluster, including managed offerings from the hyperscale cloud providers (Google, Amazon, Microsoft) or your own infrastructure, whether physical or virtualized.

Coder enables organizations to centralize development infrastructure, allowing IT administrators to apply robust security controls in a single location. For example, organizations can enforce ingress and egress network restrictions, ensure that developers only use approved software, and enable teams to separate responsibilities for application- and infrastructure-level components, such as application middleware.

Yes, your Coder admin can set the maximum access level that users will be allowed to use when creating a dev URL.

Coder supports integration with common Single and Same Sign-On technologies for authentication, including OpenID Connect (OIDC) and OAuth2. Authorization is handled internally by Coder at both the individual user and organization levels.

Coder works seamlessly within the most restrictive air-gapped environments. Note, however, that Coder cannot be deployed in an air-gapped environment during the free trial.

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.
