Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) is an easy way to help your team manage code and stay connected when developing. VSTS supports continuous integration using a shared code repository that everyone on the team uses to check in code changes.
The Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) was first introduced at Build in 2016 and was delivered as an early beta in Windows 10 Anniversary Update. Since then, the WSL team has been hard at work, dramatically improving WSL’s abilty to run an ever increasing number of native Linux command-line binaries and tools,
