Join us at our September Drupal Users Group Meetup.

Topic: Local Drupal Development with Docker

Speaker: Michael Schmid (@schnitzel),

Developing Drupal is easiest when you can do it locally on your computer, but installing all the tools necessary can be a huge pain. Nowadays, Drupal needs all kinds of tools to run: a webserver and database, Drush, Composer and many more tools. Getting them all installed and running in sync can take hours, even days.

I want to show you a much better way, a way which takes maybe 10 minutes. I promise! It’s called Docker and it’s awesome. Bring your laptop, we’re going to get Docker running locally together.

You will learn all about Docker

  • What it is
  • How it works
  • How to install it on your machine

Hands on Docker Workshop

  • Install Docker on your Computer (Linux, Mac, Windows supported)
  • Start a full fledged local development environment with nginx, mysql, php, varnish, solr, composer, drush, drupal console, and more.
  • Get one of your Drupal sites running in your new local development environment

Details about location, parking, etc can be found at the meetup page
