    Hi, we are currently focused on getting this capability to developers on Azure so we can streamline the experience all the way from the tools to Kubernetes on Azure. For example, quickly creating a Kubernetes development environment right from Visual Studio / VS Code, being able to hit F5 right away, with Kubernetes pre-configured to enable isolated development that Scott talks about in his demo. Developers can continue leveraging the underlying Kubernetes orchestrator with kubectl, helm, and other APIs.

    We hope you give it a try - you can sign up for the preview here: http://aka.ms/signup-vsce

    @Clay: The experience shown is in preview, you can try it using VS 2017 Community (or higher), VS Code, and with a CLI.
