Beyond Codespaces – Devcontainers that feel like $HOME

Event Logo

Monday, January 29, 2024 - 8:30 PM UTC, for 1 hour.

Regular, 60 minute presentation

Room: Campsite 5

Modern development methods include continuous integration and continuous deployment. Advanced tooling fosters reproducible build of our software. However, setting up the environment for development in and of itself, is still an error-prone and arbitrary process. In this talk, we will investigate the tooling for the provisioning of reproducible development environments that spin up within the blink of an eye. We will look at init systems for containers, service orchestration, logging and monitoring of container services, and even GUI applications that can run in a container that eventually feels like home.
