I use it for local development with VS code remote-containers plugin.
It enables testing new environments/technolgies quickly, cleanup is much easier compared to cleanup on the host system and you can reuse the image for your CI/CD pipelines.
Also, it can serve as documentation for the infrastructure required to launch your projects.
Mostly we use for local development as some infrastructure is unreachable from local environments.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
