Wilkerson uses the post to share GitHub’s experience of moving a decade and a half older repository into the new development environment without breaking things.
“Migrating to Codespaces addressed the shortcomings in our existing developer environments, motivated us to push the product further, and provided leverage to improve our overall development experience,” writes Wilkerson.
Looking at the bigger picture, VentureBeat opines that Codespace is part of the larger trend to move towards cloud-based coding environments, which make collaboration far easier.
GitHub Codespaces was launched in a limited public beta and there has been no announcement regarding its general availability. However, with the expansion of the platform, Team and Enterprise users can now explicitly enable Codespaces from under the settings to work with their private repositories.
