Docker has quickly become the favorite virtualization tool for many people including myself. A few months ago we were discussing various technical goals across our project and things started to come together pointing to a basic docker framework to facilitate our development processes. This basically sums up our wish list:
- Faster developer sandbox set up to get started on projects sooner.
- Consistent software stack across developers, testing infrastructure, and production.
- Ideally, a basic tool set that would work for both our new projects as well as our maintenance sites.
- Start using the cool new trendy docker.
