Begin migrating your codespaces to GitHub Codespaces

Published date: September 04, 2020

To simplify our user experience, Visual Studio Codespaces (preview) is transitioning to GitHub Codespaces. The current Azure service will become read only on 20 November 2020, and retire on 17 February 2021

How does this affect me? 

We encourage you to sign up now for the GitHub Codespaces beta, where you can create managed development environments, and connect to them from your browser or from Visual Studio Code, just like you currently do with Visual Studio Codespaces.

For more information on this move and steps you can take, read our blog post.
