Thanks to tools like vagrant, puppet/chef, and Platform as a Service services like Heroku, developers are extremely used to being able to spin up a development environment that is the same every time. What if we could go a step further and make sure our development environment is not only using the same software, but 100% configured and set up like production. Docker will let us do that, and so much more. We'll look at what Docker is, why you should look into using it, and all of the features that developers can take advantage of.

Nicely done. Thanks for sharing explaining the differences between the various docker tools and their use cases. You definitely inspired me to start using a docker solution for my local development.

Inspiring tutorial.

It was a great talk, explained a lot and showed me some new ways of looking at how to use php applications with docker. I look forward to seeing more of his talks.

I learned what I needed thanks to this tutorial given by Chris. The only thing I can complain about is that we didn't have the time to finish all the examples in the session.

All I knew about Docker and Mocks / Mockery was literally from setting up my machine for this tutorial. This was very helpful as a starting point to understand the technology and some of how it can be used. Thanks Chris.

This tutorial was very well paced, and Chris used git branches to save the audience from doing some boilerplate changes while moving between concepts. It was a solid introduction to using docker to run apps.

Loved the talk. It was a great primer for someone like myself who hadn't been exposed to Docker yet.
