Practical Typescript for the Practical Developer – Ian Phillipchuk (He/Him)
A Developer’s Adventures in Entrepreneurship – Mack Male (He/Him)
I started my first company in high school and experienced some of the highs of the dotcom boom – and the crash. My second startup was probably a decade too early, and led to how I spent that decade working for a software company, rising from developer up to manager of the worldwide product development team. I’m now a full-time entrepreneur again, working on a new startup. I’ll share some of the lessons learned along the way and hopefully offer some inspiration and motivation.
Dockerize Your Dev With VS Code (in 10 minutes!) – Mark Bennett
Do you ever get frustrated with the many tools, libraries and language versions you need to install on your development machine? As a contractor who works with many different clients, I know I do! What about when you’re working in a team and want to make sure everyone is developing with the environment? In this quick demo I’ll use the new Visual Studio Code Remote Development Tools to spin up a docker container that you can use to quickly isolate and standardize your development environment. Even better, this container integrates with the VS Code tools and addons you’re likely already using!
