Everybody is using Docker. Pull an image in minutes and start multiple containers in seconds. Great!

Unfortunately the public containers are normally not ready for an immediate use as a custom development system: Maybe the debugger is missing, the vhost is not configured correctly, or something app-specific has to be installed first.

In this session, I will show how to build your own custom system based on a Docker-compose template. This includes also the automatic setup of connections to other systems like DB servers or a load balancer to start a scalable cluster. And the best: The whole system configuration can be simply stored in a version control system, so that the Docker development template is available for all developers on the team.

It was great to see that some other devs are investing in making the dev environment as simple and as automated as possible. We have exactly the same kind of tooling internally but learned some extra things.

Nice talk, good speeker. Only the toppic technology dissapointed.
It startend out with: we are getting closer to the one-click-setup, only to end the talk with that it stille requires a pile of very complex documents ...

Great tutorial that was good and easy to follow.

I liked how you approached it to solve your problem, some examples were obviously extreme as you stated but clearly solved several problems we encounter every day using and running docker for php development. Thanks for giving me additional insights in how to approach things

Good talk!

Good talk, good speaker. Nice to see a hands on experience of using Docker in a dev & production environment.

Good speaker, interesting setup. But the information and solutions are quite dated. As the speaker later mentioned that he gave it 1,5 years ago, that's centuries in docker land. However, if you want to use docker-compose, go have a look, it is an interesting talk from a good speaker.

As someone who doesn't (yet) use Docker, I found the talk interesting even though for me it didn't really reduce the "abracadabra" level of the technical complexity.
