Sign Up for the Private Preview of Visual Studio support for Codespaces!
At the Microsoft Build conference, you may have seen our C++ Codespaces demo (at 26:00). We showed several ways Codespaces can improve your C++ development experience, including offloading your builds and other compute-heavy tasks to the cloud. We’ve already been chatting with many you, and now we are ready to allow more people into the Private Preview. Currently, our support is focused on C++ console applications and library development, so if that sounds like you, sign up for the Private Preview (and make sure to indicate “C++” as your Preferred Dev Language).
What is Codespaces?
Codespaces are cloud-powered development environments that can be accessed from anywhere. They are great for remote development since your compute is off-loaded to your Codespace, freeing up your local cores and allowing you to work from a variety of devices. For more information and quick start guides, see our Codespaces docs.
Looking forward to working with you all and getting you up-and-running in Codespaces!
