About the Talk

Docker Compose was created to facilitate managing Docker environments that require multiple service containers, such as the typical LEMP stack.

This talk demonstrates how to create a PHP development environment with Docker Compose, using a Laravel 7 application as case study. Watch how to define and integrate services, how to share files between containers, and how to manage your environment with Docker Compose commands.
