Setting up cloud dev environments in 5 minutes with Coder


One of the most frustrating and time-consuming tasks developers face is getting their development environment configured so they can start contributing to a new project. It can take hours, and if you accidentally end up with a different version of Python or Node installed than the one on your production environment you could cause problems throughout the pipeline.

In this video, we walk through the workflow of a developer getting set up with a new project using Coder. In less than 5 minutes, I create a development environment with all of the required project dependencies, a custom amount of compute power, and the tools needed to develop without disruption. I also show how Coder lets you easily share out your work to collaborators. Check it out!
