Code and DevOps

This track is focused on developers and the back-end technologies to deal with today’s and future challenges. With the coming release of Drupal 8, as well as emerging Web technologies, preparation is essential. These sessions will help you learn how to deliver effective solutions to meet these needs.

You may have heard about Docker and some of the hype surrounding it. There is a reason it has caught on so quickly. I'll explain what it is, why you probably will want to start using it, and a little bit of the new way of thinking you'll have to use when you start using containers instead of your old MAMP, WAMP or even Vagrant machines. I'll demonstrate a local Drupal development environment that is portable from local all the way to production. This is the next evolution in easing developer overhead and making your systems administrator happy.
