TypeFox is the creator of Gitpod (https://gitpod.io) an online service that allows developers to instantly spawn readily configured integrated development environments (IDE) in the browser. Gitpod tightly integrates with GitHub and other code hosting platforms and therefore eases the on-boarding process and learning curve for developers significantly. Automating development environments eliminates hours of tedious setup time, improves teamwork, and makes software development in general reproducible and scalable.
Gitpod holds a unique position on the market for online IDEs as it combines the accessibility of online code playgrounds like JSfiddle with the depth and features of desktop IDEs such as VS Code. Gitpod is open-source at core, running the new Eclipse Theia project on Kubernetes. Theia is an initiative by TypeFox and Ericsson and is now supported and used by RedHat, Eclipse Foundation, ARM, IBM and many others.
