Swift Roundup #10: Infrastructure as a Template
What do Google's new project, IDX, and IaaT (Infrastructure as a Template) have in common? They will both significantly improve your Developer Experience (DevEx).
🏗️ IaaT: Infrastructure as a Template
In the era of platform engineering, the focus is no longer on the maintenance and ongoing work of developers’ infrastructure by DevOps/SRE engineers. Instead, the aim is to produce infrastructure templates that developers can readily utilize — templates that are accessible, easy to maintain, and modifiable.

IDX is based on VSCode. The vision is full fidelity local environment with AI smarts. e.g. you get quicker starting points for apps using a popular framework, a Linux-based VM in a datacenter near you, quick deploys to Firebase Hosting and (soon) Android + iOS simulators in-browser.
