Talk: Codespaces: Developing from your iPad, browser, VS Code or anywhere!
In this session we will look at Codespaces. The new solution by Microsoft which enabled you to move your development environment into the cloud. Do you still have an old machine sitting under your desk, perfectly configured for that one VB6 legacy app? Or is onboarding new team members costing your hours or even days?
With Codespaces you can get fix all that and get a fully powered development machine up and running in 30 seconds. Say bye to the README.md, just give people a Codespace which has everything they need.
During this session I will show you what Codespaces is and how you can start writing code without installing tools and SDKs for hours on end. We will see how to use Codespaces as a separate solution, from VS Code, in a browser and even directly built into GitHub.
