KWLUG Meeting: Monday, July 10, 2023, 7pm

Dev Containers, UNIX Philosophy

Meeting Date

Note: This meeting will be held online.

Note: Brent had to postpone his Ardour presentation. Jason Eckert kindly agreed to fill in with a fun presentation refreshing us about the UNIX philosophy.


Jason Paul will tell us about Dev Containers and Cloud Development environments. He writes: 

Development containers are Docker containers that are specifically configured to provide a fully featured development environment- including libraries, frameworks, and other software dependencies.  The dev container and configuration are defined as code, so it can be consistently reproduced and shared, and can be spun up when needed and shut down/destroyed when finished.  Jason will go over a number of  options for using Dev Containers with Visual Studio Code locally on Linux, as well as some options for cloud based development environments that use this technology.
