Session Name: Fast-track microservices development with docker-compose and minikube
Containers and container orchestration have forever changed the way we distribute and run modern applications. However, some teams use containers only as a destination, a packaging system to install the application. In reality, using containers with docker-compose allows developers to do so much more. We will explore how to setup an application to take full advantage of docker-compose as an development environment that encapsulates all your dependencies, allows hot rebuilds/reloads, enhances testing, and enables microservices development. Additionally, we will explore how we can use Minikube in conjunction with docker-compose to speed up development while reducing the total cost to develop a microservices application.
