GitHub Codespaces allows developers to create development environments in the cloud and access them through an IDE as though the environment were local. GitHub isn't the first company to implement this idea; we previously blipped about Gitpod. We like that Codespaces allows environments to be standardized by using dotfiles configuration, making it quicker to onboard new team members, and that they offer VMs with up to 32 cores and 64GB memory. These VMs can be spun up in under ten seconds, potentially offering environments more powerful than a developer laptop.
