I'm just getting back home from Berlin, where I was fortunate enough to attend GitHub Satellite last week. I got to see the announcements of a bunch of really exciting new additions to the GitHub ecosystem. If you missed it, all the details about the new announcements are included below.
- Visual Studio Code Remote Development may change everything
The new Remote Development functionality in VS Code is incredible - and Scott's right, it really might change everything. Being able to code and debug on a remote machine with all the simplicity of it being local? It's opening up some incredible new workflows for developers.
- Containers? Images? An introduction to Docker in Rider
It's hard to overstate the importance that Docker has for building and running software today. But if you haven't adopted containers, this article is a nice introduction to why you should start thinking about it. (And once you're convince, Rachel's followup article is also amazing.)
- Strict null checking Visual Studio Code
This article isn't about how Visual Studio Code can help you deal with strict null checks; it's much better. Instead, it's a discussion of the journey that the VS Code team was on to enable strict null checks in their code base, why they did it, and how it helped.
- WebAssembly at eBay: A Real-World Use Case
- .NET Rocks: Rockstar with Dylan Beattie
I'm a total sucker for esoteric programming languages, but Rockstar might be my absolute favorite. Sure, the code looks like the lyrics to an 80's hair metal song, but … it's actually runnable source code. Insanity, sure, but very epic insanity.
Published at the beginning of every week.
