Why every project needs a dev container - an introduction

Dev containers are a VS Code feature that allow us to define the perfect development environment for our project.

This enables a definition of a working development environment for all of your team or your open-source contributors to be quickly and easily provisioned and updated. It will even work in a browser! No more worrying about the right hardware, software installations, dependencies, or updates. You can control it all with dev containers and make it simple and easy.

In this session we'll cover why dev containers can be so useful, show off an example we built to make contributing to dbachecks (an open-source module combining pester & dbatools to test our infrastructure) easy, and how you can easily add a dev container to your own projects.
