Demystifying DevContainers and Codespaces
In the last few years, developers have witnessed the power of infrastructure-as-code to create consistent, repeatable deployments. But what about their own development environments? How do you enable team members to immediately start coding without having to spend significant time to setup and configure an environment? To answer that, we must enter the world of Development Containers and GitHub Codespaces.
In this session, we'll cover how to create and use development containers to simplify your coding tasks. We'll explore creating and using environments locally and in GitHub Codespaces. Additionally, we'll dive into defining custom containers and environments, including dynamically personalizing your instances.
In this 100-level session, attendees will learn:
- Understand the basics of containers and dev containers
- Implement and configure dev containers in VS Code and Codespaces
- How to personalize your dev container instances
