This training class will provide a foundation for implementing a development environment using Docker to build a development stack for Drupal projects. In this class you will learn the following:

  • How to start constructing a development stack using publicly available “official” Docker containers
  • How to modify the “official” container configuration to meet the specific needs of your project (i.e, write Dockerfiles to create a custom container)
  • How to deploy customized containers to Docker Hub
  • How to manage your development stack using Docker Compose
  • How to integrate containers in your stack on as “as needed” basis
  • How to utilize your container stack to execute tests using Travis

When you leave this class, you should be armed with the foundational knowledge to begin implementing Docker into your development workflow.

This class is targeted at developers with a working knowledge of application configuration in a server environment (how to install packages with a package manager such as  apt  or  rpm ), knowledge of bash shell scripting, and a general understanding of component architecture.
