Contain(erize) your dev environment to free yourself

Session en anglais - Débutant

Countless hours (and days) are lost on day zero, the first day a dev wants to contribute to a new project. There's services to install, library versions to contend with, and obscure error messages to Google. Running everything locally is a terrible way to manage dev environments.

Containerize your environment to free yourself! Let's explore how to create dev containers so you, and your team, can start writing code without the headache.

Session en anglais - Intermédiaire

Let's talk about where we are, where we're going, and how to get the most out of this new tool.
