Let's create a GEOSPATIAL DEVELOPMENT environment using Python and VS Code + Docker

How to create a new devcontainer to use in Visual Studio Code

Before starting geospatial development we need to setup a new programming environment.

For beginners I will suggest you to create a new devcontainer to use in Visual Studio Code which leverages Python and Docker. Let’s see how!

🐍 What is Python?

Python is a high-level, general-purpose programming language. Its design philosophy emphasizes code readability with the use of significant indentation. Python is dynamically typed and garbage-collected. It supports multiple programming paradigms, including structured (particularly procedural), object-oriented and functional programming.

πŸ‘©β€πŸ’» What is Visual Studio Code?

Visual Studio Code, also commonly referred to as VS Code, is a source-code editor made by Microsoft with the Electron Framework, for Windows, Linux and macOS. Features include support for debugging, syntax highlighting, intelligent code completion, snippets, code refactoring, and embedded Git. Users can change the theme, keyboard shortcuts, preferences, and install extensions that add functionality.
