Introducing Coherence

We're building the world's first Developer Experience Platform.
April 13, 2022

Coherence orchestrates your developer tool chain so your team can focus on building software that people love. Our mission is to provide software teams with a great developer experience - one with orders-of-magnitude less “glue” and “yak shaving”. The software development lifecycle starts before code is written and ends after code is deployed. We need tools that make it easy to think about our needs holistically, move between stages seamlessly, and to do better than “good enough” when configuring and managing them.

Most developers feel their experience could be improved, as many have written about. Coherence is a full-stack tool that is comprehensive, elegant, flexible, and meets you where you are today. You don’t need to rewrite your app, choose new vendors, or abandon your current SDLC.

Our thesis is that a better developer experience will make teams more inclusive and help companies push their products closer to what their users and customers need. And that an integrated product that plays well with the cloud ecosystem, and removes glue code while preserving choice and autonomy, is the right product to deliver that experience.

Coherence is that product. Development teams in the 21st century should have a “10x” better toolkit that lets them focus on understanding and delivering value for their users. We're calling it the first Developer Experience Platform and we’re excited to show you what it looks like.

We’ve built an integrated dashboard with Cloud IDE’s, dev environments, continuous previews and deployments running in your own AWS or GCP account. You can leverage the whole platform across the development lifecycle or try specific features individually. We've had a few customers start with our on-demand preview environments before graduating on to deployments and cloud development. We'd love to get your feedback!
