Secure by design
Every Codespaces environment is hardened by default and lives in its own ephemeral VM, in an isolated virtual network. Your code and private networks can only be accessed by authenticated users.
What you can do with CodespacesLearn how GitHub builds with Codespaces
Code from any device
Want to code on an iPad? Go for it. You can spin up Codespaces from any device with internet access. And forget about worrying if your device is powerful enough. Codespaces lives in the cloud.
Onboard at the speed of light
No more building your dev environment while you onboard. Codespaces starts instantly from any repository on GitHub with pre-configured, secure environments. It’s as easy as clicking a button.
Model, train, and analyze data
Run Jupyter notebooks right from Codespaces. Now data scientists and developers can code, develop models, and collaborate in powerful compute environments that spin up in seconds.
Fix bugs and secure code right from an issue
Get an issue detailing a bug or security issue in your code? Open Codespaces right from the issue to get to work without waiting for your dev environment to load.
