Ben Potter
Coder, Developer Advocate

Ben Potter is a Developer Advocate for Coder currently residing in Austin TX. Before joining Coder, Ben worked with several dev tools startups and spent a lot of time with his head (and his projects) in the cloud.


Kubernetes can solve many of the problems that apply to running dev environments in the cloud. This talk explores the benefits of cloud IDEs and discusses using K8s to host and manage remote IDEs for a dev team. Ben will present a demo of a Kubernetes cluster with workspaces for 25 developers that include code-server, JetBrains Projector, VS Code Remote, and pre-installed dev tools. Beyond the demo, Ben will also explore some of the complications associated with hosting dev environments at scale.
