Halfway through each month, our newsletter for developers: The Dev Times, brings three reads that our own developers found interesting on the web, and two Transloadit updates that may interest you.

Vidr.io is compatible with any screen-sharing app you choose, and it makes you feel fully immersed in a remote conversation by replacing your small, square webcam in the corner with a full holographic effect across your entire desktop to deliver a more immersive feel.

Brought to you by GitHub, Codespaces is a new dev environment currently in beta that allows developers to get the full Visual Studio Code experience, all without leaving GitHub. Codespaces makes it easier than ever to get involved in contributing towards open source. It can be configured to naturally load your code and dependencies, developer tools, extensions, and dotfiles. This enables you to build, deploy, test, and debug everything from within your browser. Switching between environments has never been so easy: you can navigate away at any time, and when you switch back, your Codespace is automatically re-opened. Check it out. ›
Deno is the creation of Ryan Dahl, known for creating a little thing called Node.js. Deno attempts to provide a standalone tool to quickly script complex functionality.

Deno recently reached 1.0, and in this YouTube crash course, you'll learn what Deno is and how to run it, and use it together with some full example code. Read more. ›
