Staging environments are notoriously difficult to setup and maintain. Unless you have a top-notch DevOps team, staging environments are usually different from production environments, and because of that, are fraught with problems—from failing deployments, to out-of-disk-space errors, and various other errors.
Even when the staging environment is great, it has one problem—there’s only one. If you want to test a feature branch, you have to “allocate time”, or alternatively install the feature branch and risk disrupting other testers.
It’s time the testers took control! And built their own testing environments using Docker, Docker-Compose, and Kubernetes.
In this talk, Sr. Software Architect Gil Tayar shows how to deploy an app on your local machine using Docker and Docker Compose, and run an E2E test on it.
