Iterating Faster with Docker and Cascade CMS


Docker allows us to package and run applications of any stack in isolated containers. These containers, unlike Virtual Machines, only use libraries and settings required by the app, and not a full Operating System. Utilizing Docker, we will cover how to "containerize" Cascade. This will give us an alternative local work environment for Cascade administrators and developers allowing for faster iteration when it comes to: testing new Cascade versions, testing site-wide settings, roles and groups, writing cross-site formats and blocks, and developing Cascade plugins.
