Description

Visual Studio Code Remote Development allows you to use a container, remote machine, or the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) as a full-featured development environment.

  • Develop on the same operating system you deploy to or use larger or more specialized hardware.
  • Sandbox your development environment to avoid impacting your local machine configuration.
  • Make it easy for new contributors to get started and keep everyone on a consistent environment.
  • Use tools or runtimes not available on your local OS or manage multiple versions of them.
  • Develop your Linux-deployed applications using the Windows Subsystem for Linux.
  • Access an existing development environment from multiple machines or locations.
  • Debug an application running somewhere else such as a customer site or in the cloud.

Brigit Murtaugh, a PM with VS Code, will talk through the benefits of remote development workflows and then demonstrate how to set things up using VS Code, WSL, Windows Terminal, a remote desktop machine, and a Virtual Machine (VM).
