  • Web API – Dev environment in 120 seconds
    dev.to | 2021-10-02
    Before we get too far ahead, let’s codify the bits we already know. We start VS Code and browse through a catalog of available dev containers… This time round we needed to set up and orchestrate at least two: we’ve got our app as well as Hoppscotch sitting in the same virtual network. That led us to opt for docker-from-docker-compose container template. On top of that, we enhanced it with dotnet SDK installation like our AWS Lambda container.
  • AWS Lambda – Dev environment in 120 seconds

    The biggest issue by far was the fact that SAM heavily relies on containers which for us means we’ll have to go deeper and use docker-in-docker dev container as a starting point. The base image there comes with bare minimum software and dotnet SDK is not part of it. So, we’ll have to install everything ourselves:
  • Azure Functions – Dev environment in 120 seconds

    Next, we'll use VS Code's built-in dev container library to pick our environment of choice. Then we'll build up and switch into our container and create a function app. Finally, we'd run the code to verify environment set up correctly.

  • GitHub’s Engineering Team has moved to Codespaces
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-08-11
    Currently, VS Code is the primary method of connection to each Codespace, and we do not support other editors officially.

    If you’re looking to connect via SSH, we do have a workaround here: https://github.com/microsoft/vscode-dev-containers/blob/main... -- and I use this regularly for Jupyter Notebooks.
