Kickass Development Environments with Docker

By: David McKay

Docker is a tool that allows you to package your application up into a single-runnable, distributable, binary; which is great for deploying your applications to production … but what about local development?

Allow me to introduce you to Docker and it’s fundamentals, before quickly moving on to crafting great development environments, with Docker Compose, that encapsulate your non-PHP dependencies: such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, Elasticsearch, and more.

You’ll walk away from this session with the knowledge to write your own container based workflows, for development and production; so be prepared to throw away your Vagrantfile’s when you get back to the office 😀
