FREMONT, CA: Koding, a company offering software development automation platform for developers elevates its platform to bring about better team development. The firm facilitates developers with the tools and technology needed to automate the overall management and integration of code.

"Koding is the only technology that goes beyond automating and auto scaling production environments, making it possible to do so with development environments," says Devrim Yasar, CEO and Co-Founder, Koding.

Developers can implement the process at on-premises servers and on multiple cloud platforms for organizations. In order to develop the platform for teams, Koding included the ability to create and manage teams, collaboration tools such as screen sharing and Slack integration, permission and access control for members, and the option to use their own credentials over the cloud. Koding delivers developers the essential skill needed to easily reinvent complex environments in an innovative manner. The process saves valuable time with collaboration, onboarding and quality assurance (QA). Also, the integration test cycle is shortened  as developers can write the code in an environment which resembles with the production process.

Focusing on the tools area, Koding developed a utility known as "kd" which allows developers to use integrated development environments and native development tools. Additionally, on the collaboration area, the company also included video integration and Slack, while on the code management area, they effectively enabled integrations with Bitbucket, GitLab. Along with the cloud services such as SoftLayer and AWS, the firm also incorporated the facility to deploy via Vagrant.

"We see users sign up, directly join a collaboration session, and have subsequent sessions with the same group of people all the time. This meant to us that we needed to support this type of use-case in a big way," adds Yasar.
