Dev Environments as Code with Gitpod



Development Environments are brittle and hard to setup and maintain. Cloning repos, installing an editor with right extensions and having everything setup to compile, build and debug the application under development is a tedious experience.
Gitpod is an open-source project, that helps teams providing fully set-up, containerized development environments specifically for their projects. Such dev environments are described in code that is versioned in Git alongside your source code.
Deeply integrated with GitLab, GitHub and Bitbucket, Gitpod automatically and continuously prebuilds dev environments for all your branches. As a result team members can instantly start coding with fresh, ephemeral and fully-initialized dev environments - whether you are building a new feature, fixing a bug, or working on a code review.
In this session you will learn why we created Gitpod, how it works and how you can boost your development workflow using it - extensive demos included.
