Are you loving GitHub Codespaces, but miss the deep customizations you have labored over in your local VS Code instance? Are you struggling on re-learning hotkeys that you otherwise had modified? Check out this session to find out how to sync your VS Code settings from your local instance to Codespaces, including extensions, themes, hotkeys, fonts, and more! In addition, you'll learn about configuring a dotfiles repository to execute custom startup scripts for further customization (ZSH terminal plugins anyone?!) to make your Codespace your own!

You will learn:

  • GitHub Codespaces
  • Devcontainers
  • Customizing your dev environment
