Containerized tool chain to simplify IoT device development

The public preview of containerized device tool chain enabled in Azure IoT Device Workbench extension in VS Code is released.

The whole purpose is to simplify the device cross-compiling toolchain acquisition effort for device developers working on embedded Linux devices (e.g. Debian, Ubuntu, Yocto Linux…) with Azure IoT by encapsulating the compilers, device SDK and essential libraries in containers. All you need is to install or upgrade the IoT Device Workbench (v.0.3.1) and Docker runtime. And a target device like Raspberry Pi. Then everything works just like today you are using a local environment.
