One of the oldest inside programmer jokes is, “works on my machine!” It’s a joke, because it’s true. 80% of software development is building the thing, and the other 80% is getting it to run somewhere besides the machine where it was built. If we’re going to fix this problem (and we are), we’ve got to get rid of the problem - which - is YOUR machine. In this session, we’ll take a look at how VS Code uses a concept called Remote Development to isolate entire development environments into simple configuration files. Some day, all you’ll need to run and develop any project, is a web browser.


Basic awareness of Docker and containers.
