re: I hate setting up my dev environment. VIEW POST


Slightly different tack for me...

Given my main dev environment is Visual Studio (full fat version), and that typically takes several hours to install, I've recently been experimenting with the pre-installed developer VMs in Azure: 10mins tops to create, log in, connect to VSTSHHHHAzure DevOps, pull and go.

If I mess it up, I don't have to untangle anything, it's only had one job so I can burn it and build another. Cattle not pets even for dev work :)

I can work from any terminal with an RDP client, I can leave long jobs running while I travel, of course I don't get to access it without a 'net connection, but that's pretty unusual, even on trains.
