Databases, servers and micro-services all set up automatically on a developer machine in a matter of minutes. Testing, staging and production environments built with the click of a button. Yesterday’s dream has become today’s reality, and we at JFrog have been doing it for several years with the help of tools like Vagrant, Chef, Artifactory and Jenkins.
But can we do better? Of course we can…thanks to Docker! By breaking up our monolithic environment into interconnected containers, we can achieve a faster setup and amazing flexibility. But with this flexibility come unprecedented headaches and challenges.
In this session we will talk about our experience migrating a complicated, multi-faceted dev environment from a Vagrant-Chef combo to Docker, and about the challenges and opportunities that this new setup brings.
