What's a cloud development environment?

CDEs are on-demand development environments that are pre-configured with all tools, libraries and dependencies needed to write and review code.

Works on my any machine

No more compatibility issues. Developers can work with the same tools, libraries, and dependencies, regardless of operating system, with a single click.

Start developing instantly

Reduce time to first PR, drastically. With pre-configured environments, eliminate the need to setup any dev environments: local, VDI or homegrown.

Your code, secured

Source code is centrally and safely stored in the cloud, never locally. Additionally, all data is encrypted at rest and connections to CDEs are encrypted in transit.

Secure data movement

Integrate with your existing development infrastructure

Connect Git provider

GitLab GitHub Bitbucket

Collaborate with anyone

From QA to PMs to designers, anyone can preview, open or share a dev environment. Jump in with your immediate team or cross-functional stakeholders to preview changes live and shorten feedback cycles.

Data center performance, less overhead

Pre-built environments speed up development by building branches in the background, without killing your laptop battery.

Gitpod is the most exciting developer tool I have encountered since, I don’t know, telnet maybe? Unix? It’s been a while.

Gitpod easily saves every engineer half a day per week. The amount of productivity we gain is staggering.

I’d estimate each engineer saves 5 to 10 hours a month on dev environment issues that just don’t exist with Gitpod.

The ability for QAs to easily test a branch resulted in 20% fewer hotfixes after releases.

I would rather shut down the academy than stop using Gitpod.

Look at any PR (pull request) in a full coding environment where you can edit, build, and test the PR code, by just prepending "" to the PR URL. Super useful for reviewing/testing stuff without having to check it out locally!
