There is a great addition to the Azure IoT Device Workbench extension for VS Code that just got released in preview: containerized device tool chain!containerized-toolchain-1-300x163

 

The goal is to simplify the device cross-compiling toolchain acquisition effort for device developers working on embedded Linux devices (e.g. Debian, Ubuntu, Yocto Linux…) with Azure IoT by encapsulating the compilers, device SDK and essential libraries in containers.

All you need to do is install or upgrade the IoT Device Workbench (v.0.3.1) extension and the Docker runtime on your dev machine.

No need to tinker with install of toolchains and libraries anymore. You select the target, and let IoT Device Workbench do the work. :smiling_face_with_smiling_eyes:

 

You can find more details and start right now from this blog post: https://devblogs.microsoft.com/iotdev/containerized-tool-chain-to-simplify-iot-device-development/
