Austin-based startup Coder has launched, an online integrated development environment (IDE) that enables anyone to write code on any device. fully supports 15 programming languages and directly ties into cloud providers, giving users unlimited computational power. Coder is currently in private alpha and releasing large batches of keys every week. The company is actively looking for developers who want to help improve their platform.

“We're nervous and excited to share what we've been building with the community,” says John A. Entwistle, CEO of Coder. “I look forward to hearing what they love and what they hate. The potential is there, and I know we're all looking forward to making Coder better and better.”

Coder provides software engineers a new way to code, and now, collaborate with others in real time. Leveraging the computational power of Google Cloud, Coder automatically and dynamically scales a user’s computational resources based on whatever their process requires. This makes Coder’s web IDE up to 30 times faster than a 2017 MacBook Pro, regardless of local hardware.

Free of device limits, users aren’t hindered by their internet connection, either. Since Coder leverages cloud providers’ networks, users can clone and upload from their development environment at gigabit speeds. On Coder, all that’s required is one bar of 4G. Typically, booting and connecting to a remote server takes a while, but Coder loads Ubuntu containers in under a second — letting users start coding faster. Pair programming is becoming more and more popular, and all Coder users can collaborate with ease.

Coder was founded by John A. Entwistle along with Kyle Carberry and Ammar Bandukwala, the company’s two chief technology officers. The trio moved to Austin a year ago and have since grown the company to more than 30 employees.

With 24 million active developers globally and 24 percent of them students, according to GitHub’s State of the Octoverse 2017 and a recent Stack Overflow Survey, respectively, Coder is an attractive option for new developers.
