This is a quick review about GitHub Codespaces, which you can load right on the browser.

In this video, we talk about creating a Codespaces instance from a GitHub Repository. We load a GitHub project using the VM instance that is provisioned for us when a GitHub Codespace is added to the repo. To edit the project files, the browser loads a VS Code online version of the IDE, which then uses the SSH protocol to virtualize the code from the VM onto our browser. Since we are basically using a VM, we can open a terminal from the browser session and run NPM and Git commands. All these commands are executed on the VM. GitHub Codespaces are a quick way to provision a VM instance without the complexity of manually building on a cloud account.

Thanks for reading.
