Using a Docker container as a development environment has many great benefits, such as easily switching between different languages and toolsets and providing all your teammates a consistent machine configuration. But what's the best way to get started with containers? And what if you aren't a Docker expert?
Well look no further, because we've created a series of videos about dev containers in Visual Studio Code! We'll show you how to get, create, and configure a container-based development environment with the VS Code Remote - Containers extension.
By the end of this series, you'll be able to configure any project so that it runs inside a Docker container. You can further review the content we cover by checking out the Remote - Containers Microsoft Learn Module: https://aka.ms/devcontainers-learn-module.
