Austin, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE). The Coder developer platform maximizes productivity by eliminating lost setup time and effort—and reducing the risk of security threats.
Coder moves development workloads from local workstations to cloud servers. This allows 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 Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) that go a step beyond the Code Server web IDE.
“Between development environments that have become more complicated and dependent on external services, and the need for faster, seamless collaboration between teams often spread across the globe, the demand for cloud IDEs has increased,” said Stephen O’Grady, senior analyst at RedMonk. “This is the opportunity Coder was built for.”
Palantir Technologies lists the following benefits of using Coder in a blog post titled “The Benefits of Remote Ephemeral Workspaces.”
Faster Development Cycles – Build times improved by 78%
Faster Download Times – Improved Git clone times by 71%
Less onboarding and support
Increased external contributions
Better local laptop experience
“By leveraging open source Terraform, Coder enables developers to run a cloud IDE on any computing platform including on-premises data centers, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, DigitalOcean, Kubernetes, Docker and more, with workspaces running on Linux will. Windows or Mac,” said Kevin Fishner, HashiCorp chief of staff.
Coder is used globally by businesses ranging from unicorns to the Fortune 500, small businesses and the public sector including companies in software and technology, investment and consumer banking, gaming, intelligence, hedge funds, Big 4 consulting, wealth management, oil and gas, IT outsourcing and the US Department of Defense.
“We enable developers and data scientists to focus on writing code. All you have to do is open a web browser, select a workspace template, and start coding. This eliminates the wasted hours, days, and even weeks of manual and error-prone processes that are typically required to get a developer workspace set up correctly, and another major benefit is the time saved in all the ongoing efforts required to keep everything up to date to hold,” said Ammar Bandukwala, Co-Founder and CEO of Coder.
“Unlike alternatives, Coder software gives its users the freedom to use pretty much any tools they want,” said Kyle Carberry, Coder co-founder and chief technology officer. “At the same time, Coder uses an architecture that is inherently far more secure than local development and provides organizations with powerful capabilities to implement security controls. Now developer productivity and enterprise security can finally 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 avoid lost productivity due to slow builds and tests on underperforming devices, and improve security with control over compliance, configurations, tools and updates.
With Coder, developers use a single login, create a workspace in minutes, and start coding from the browser IDE (Visual Studio Code, JetBrains IntelliJ/PyCharm, Jupyter, RStudio, etc.) on any computer, anywhere. This is especially beneficial for onboarding, as new hires are up and running in minutes and can start working immediately.
