Name: Docker for Web Development

Date/time: Tuesday, October 3, 2023, 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM Pacific Time


Introduction: Explore the process of setting up Docker for web development, with a focus on building a ReactJS frontend with a NodeJS backend. In this workshop, we will delve into the use of Compose, which enables the creation of a local development environment by combining PHP APIs and TypeScript-based NodeJS APIs. We also will discuss the importance of optimizing build times and utilizing Compose Watch for efficient development. To address security concerns, we will explore NPM vulnerabilities and how to use Docker Scout. Additionally, we will highlight Docker Desktop Extensions for web developers. We conclude with a look at the significance of implementing end-to-end web development testing in CI/CD pipelines using Docker.
