Last November Microsoft announced the Visual Studio Online Public Preview. “Visual Studio Online provides cloud-powered development environments for any activity” as Microsoft defines. This is a really great idea which requires an active Azure Subscription. Additionally you can manage your VSO environments from Visual Studio Code.
This was in last year. And now Microsoft provides some new updates to us such as Dockerfile support. Then the Real-time Collaborative Development is far stable than before.
I really like this feature because it could be useful for collaborative development and/or debugging. You can share your thoughts with your colleagues, during all of you can see the code in live.
Long story short, you can find the details in What’s New in Visual Studio Online article.
I suggest to try the new way of development, because it’s cool. 🙂
