Boot Camp

Boot Camp

Boot Camp Assistant is a multi-boot utility included with Apple Inc.’s macOS (previously OS X) that assists users in installing Microsoft Windows operating systems on Intel-based Macintosh computers. The utility guides users through non-destructive disk partitioning (including resizing of an existing HFS+ partition if necessary) of their hard disk drive or solid state drive and installation of Windows device drivers for the Apple hardware. The utility also installs a Windows Control Panel applet for selecting the boot operating system.

Visual Studio Code + Docker + Python using WSL in Windows on Boot Camp

I imagine your first thought is: why? Well, at Wehkamp we do a lot of cross platform development, but sometimes we end up with shell scripts that do stuff with Docker and Python. Usually that’s not a problem for Mac, but for Windows it’s a different thing. I have a MacBook Pro, but I’m a .NET developer, that’s why I prefer Windows, so I run Bootcamp. This article will show how to do Python development in the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) using Visual Studio Code and Docker.
