Discussion on: How GitHub Codespaces increase productivity and lower barriers

I honestly feel like this is the sorta of feature that can become a "killer feature" for the platform if done correctly.

  • github accessibility
  • major cloud provider support
  • fantastic integration with VSCode

I got into the beta and really like it, with just 1 major gripe. It doesn't work on VSCode installed on Chromebooks. (see this issue)

Such support would of been a game changer for me where I could use my Chromebook as a "dumb terminal" with VSCode installed, backed by a cloud instance. Such would allow me to scale up/down my dev environment. Hopefully such support eventually comes :)
