Coder is an open-source solution that takes a platform-agnostic approach to remote development architecture that enables software development on infrastructure designed by you which is always under your control. By leveraging Terraform, Coder lets developers run an IDE on any compute platform including on-prem, AWS, Azure, GCP, DigitalOcean, Kubernetes, Docker, and more, with workspaces running on Linux, Windows, or Mac.
