Docker in Production
Docker has already gained widespread adoption in local development and is now starting to become more prevalent in LIVE production environments. Using AWS’s ECS platform, we have created numerous production containers for our Drupal applications and have found we not only significantly lowered infrastructure costs but simplified scaling, deployment, and management concerns as well.
This session aims to illustrate the real-world benefits and challenges of using Docker in production through publicly accessible examples.
- Validate usage of docker in local development
- Demystify key Docker concepts and how they translate in a production environment
- Detail some of the major decisions faced when implementing production containers and how to approach them.
- Learn how to alleviate deployment pains with increased testing (bonus: canary deployments)

Almost a decade later, he formally pursued his passion for software engineering and received a degree in computer science from the University of South Florida. While his drive remains with software development and cloud infrastructure, he has been intrigued with security, especially when it relates to development. Michael has since obtained security certifications that have allowed him to advance his expertise as a security enthusiast. In March 2017, Michael successfully completed the Penetration Testing with Kali Linux certification exam and earned an Offensive Security Certified Professional certification.
