Coder Developer Platform Launched
June 23, 2022

Coder announced the release of a new open source project that gives developers and data scientists a consistent, secure, yet flexible way to create cloud workspaces in minutes.

The Coder developer platform maximizes productivity by eliminating the lost time and toil of setup – and reduces exposure to security threats.

Coder offloads development workloads from local workstations to cloud servers. This enables developer environments to be set up in minutes with build, test, and compilation done on powerful cloud servers. Source code and data are secured behind the corporate firewall. Coder provides teams with a platform to adopt remote IDEs (Integrated Development Environment) going a step beyond the code-server web IDE.

“We enable developers and data scientists to focus on writing code. All that’s required is opening a web browser, choosing a workspace template, and then you’re ready to start coding. This eliminates the wasted hours, days, and even weeks of manual and error-prone processes typically required to get a developer workspace set up correctly, and another huge benefit is saving time on all the ongoing effort needed to keep everything up-to-date,” said Ammar Bandukwala, Co-founder and CEO, Coder.

“Unlike alternatives, the Coder software gives its users freedom to use pretty much whatever tools they want,” said Kyle Carberry, Co-founder and CTO, Coder. “At the same time, Coder uses an architecture that is inherently far more secure than local development and provides enterprises with powerful capabilities to implement security controls. Now, finally, developer productivity and enterprise security can live in harmony.”

Coder moves developer workspaces to the user’s preferred infrastructure and centralizes their creation and management to provide ubiquitous access, scalability, and extensibility. Organizations can eliminate loss of productivity due to slow builds and tests on under-powered devices and enhance security with control over compliance, configurations, tools, and updates.

With Coder, developers use a single sign in, build a workspace in minutes, and begin coding through the browser IDE (Visual Studio Code, JetBrains IntelliJ/PyCharm, Jupyter, RStudio, others) on any machine anywhere. This is especially beneficial for onboarding, as new hires are up and running in minutes and can begin contributing immediately.
