Instant Self-Contained Development Environments for Everyone


It has become increasingly difficult & time consuming to start working on a new codebase, especially in a polyglot microservice world. Using several patterns & developer containers we can create an amazing developer experience that will allow anyone to instantly deep-dive into coding on any machine.

This talk will introduce the concept of a self-contained repository - a repository that contains all relevant information for workstation/dependency configuration, build, debug, CI/CD, secrets (encrypted), docs and more that reside in the repository. We’ll explore the idea of a development container and how we can use free OSS technologies (like Git Docker & Docker Compose, Kubernetes, GPG, VSCode, Tilt…) to create a stable development environment that works out-of-the-box and provides all the power, speed and capabilities of modern development & cloud native tooling. Live code examples will be showcased as part of this talk.

#PWC2022 attracted nearly 375 attendees from 36 countries and 21 time zones making it the biggest and best year yet. The highly engaging format featured 90 speakers, 6 tracks (including 80 talks and 4 tutorials) and took place virtually on March 21-25, 2022 on LoudSwarm by Six Feet Up.
