3.3. Development Container#

A development container is a great way to develop Linux containers on your own computer when you use Mac or Windows. Start by following Microsoft’s Dev Containers Tutorial.

You should have Git installed and setup natively on your computer. When you clone the class repository the devcontainer configuration inside of it will trigger vscode to ask if you want to open the workspace in a devcontainer. Say yes. The build will take a while but when it’s done you will have all of the tools you need for this class installed.
