About this event

"Works on my machine" is a well-known statement made by developers. In open-source projects with heterogenous contributors and complex IoT applications which might have restrictions & dependencies to hardware architectures and software packages this is a real challenge. In this event we show you how you might address this challenge with devcontainers on example of the project.

The following topics will be covered:

  1. Introduction devcontainers
  2. Demo (coding from anywhere)
  3. Common pitfalls
  4. New(ish) features - Composible devcontainers
  5. Q&A
