Containerized dev environment config.

Our review

What we like

Well-documented open standard for defining containerized development environments. Supported by several tools for consistent environments locally and in the cloud. Allows the environment to be versioned alongside the code. Can define resource usage limits, environment vars, endpoints. Samples provided in the open registry.

What we don't like

Very k8s centric even though the spec can be used generically. Another standard (see xkcd 927).
