Secure Code Warrior unveils Coding Labs

Secure Code Warrior , a global , developer-driven security leader , has unveiled Coding Labs , a new mechanism that allows developers to more easily move from learning to applying secure coding knowledge , leading to fewer vulnerabilities in code .

This marks the first time a coding-specific platform has enabled real-time coding in an in-browser integrated development environment ( IDE ).
Until now , to get more direct real-coding training experience , developers have needed to rely on virtualised setups that can be difficult to use and unfamiliar , leading to less applicable learning experiences . Coding Labs allows developers to not only save time and eliminate distractions , but also gives developers more options that align to their diverse learning styles while making it easier to go from learning to doing .
“ We found that 40 % of developers don ’ t believe they ’ re receiving enough hands-on training from their current tools and resources . We ’ ve set out to fundamentally change that ,” said Pieter Danhieux , Co-founder and CEO , Secure Code Warrior .
“ Coding Labs enables developers to learn in an environment that simulates the way they work and will see them more confidently write secure code . This is the future of vulnerability mitigation .”
Secure Code Warrior ’ s unique tiered learning approach builds confidence in developers to advance their secure coding skills and shift left in their software development life cycles for the betterment of their organisations . x
