How long do you think a MacBook Pro 16 visual studio code and Google Chrome/XAMPP last on battery?
7hr not near power outlet but need screen size

I don't think interactive development is much different from general usage nowadays, unless you do heavy compiling, or your code does heavy things.

It's unlikely you'll get 7 hours. You might do better if you could use Safari instead of Chrome but it's still going to be tough. If you don't need a computer right now wait for an Apple Silicon version of the 16" and it will probably be able to last double what the Intel 16" can do on battery.
