Getting a development environment properly setup and configured across multiple distributed team members can be a challenging and time-consuming task. You're often installing one or more server frameworks (and ensuring you have the correct version), a database and other items, such as a caching server. Once servers are installed, you have to ensure everything is configured and secured properly and consistently for all team members.

Docker can help you address many of the challenges associated with development environment consistency and the overall developer workflow by introducing images and containers into the mix. In this session, Dan Wahlin will address the challenges developers face and explain how tools provided by the Docker Toolbox can address these challenges. By the end of the session, you'll have a solid understanding of how you can get multiple servers up and running in a snap and simplify your overall development workflow using Docker.

You will learn:

  • How Docker can make developers more productive
  • The key features Docker Toolbox offers
  • How to enhance your development workflow with Docker
