Break up with your dev machine

The days of dragging a bulky dev laptop around are over - affordable cloud tools have made a powerful yet lightweight development environment a reality.

We will explore running a lightweight development environment - with Windows Virtual Desktop, VS Code and Azure, GitHub Codespaces both in the browser and Visual Studio.

From picking up your tricky coding problem exactly where you left off, to ultra-fast builds, to the challenges when a reliable internet connection isn't guaranteed (like those post-COVID train journeys), Callum will show you how to get started and share his experience of all 3 approaches having used them for daily work over the past few months.
