Docker (&-compose) for (Perl) Developers

20 minutes



Everyone is talking about Docker in production and how, if possible, to do it right, but we're not talking enough about what the container model can do for developers.

Adopting a docker-compose based workflow gives some non-intuitive benefits: explicit dependencies, reproducible builds, disposable laptops and the kind of things that qualify you for a 'devops' badge.

This is not a Docker 101. I will assume the audience has minimal notions about what Docker is.
