Bringing Edge's DevTools to VS Code for debugging web apps
Chris Heilmann, Principal Program Manager at Microsoft

Watch on-demand
When building web apps, developers know they need to switch between the editor and the browser to test their code, and that's a lot of context switches! What if you could use the DevTools from your Chromium-based Edge browser directly in VS Code?
In this session we’ll show you how we were able to bring the DevTools into the editor, and what we had to do to make this complex extension talk to editor and browser and stay accessible and easy to use at the same time.

A climate-positive event

Digital events have an environmental impact too: VS Code Day 2021 is estimated to produce about 2.3 metric tons of CO2, including both the event's production and attendees streaming live and on-demand. We're partnering with Tradewater to fully offset the carbon emissions for VS Code Day and then more–becoming carbon negative!
