"Blue Ocean Development: Set up Docker for Success" with TJ Draper


Docker sounds great, but how do you make it work? What’s a container, what’s an image? How do you go from dev to production? Why would you want to? Most engineers could describe in detail why dev environments suck, why staging is terrible, and how bugs occur in production that can’t be replicated elsewhere. In this presentation I provide working examples and speak from experience setting up Dockerized environments, elucidate concepts I wish had been clear to me from the start, and explain how it all works together to eliminate pain points while giving engineers more control of the software stack. Containerization is one of the most freeing technologies to come to web development and I can show you how.

Nashville PHP is a community of PHP and Web developers serving the metro Nashville and Middle Tennessee areas. Everyone is welcome, no matter your skill level. Come learn with us!

Follow us at on the Fediverse or at @nashvillephp on Twitter.

Bitcoin Park is our sponsor graciously offering the space for us to get together, and Bitrefill pays for the pizza. Look for the map on this event page for directions.

Parking: There are a few spots to the side and rear of the building, but please *do not* park in the church parking lot. (They have a sign warning you. It’s hard to miss.) You’re welcome to park anywhere else. After 5pm, street parking is usually easy to find, especially along Magnolia Blvd.
