    I wanted to use postgres. So I made a docker compose file and specified I wanted postgres which was 5 lines maybe 20 chars total.

    That's how I got postgres in my app.

    Planning on going to prod with it in a week. But having a hard time sometimes finding information and best practices.

    I'm running gitlab in a docker container on an old laptop. It's fun not having to recode something after something bad happens to my computer

    I love that I can take my application and all of its dependencies and make it easily deployable while leaving my base system minimum.

    @rookiemaverick My app goes into production in a couple of weeks. I will be deploying around five containerized applications and using Ansible to roll out updated containers later on.

    Simplifies build in a declarative way. Much easier to distribute and easier to pivot to different platforms.

    - Gets rid of "works on my machine". If it runs on your machine, it will work 100% on prod also.
    - you can use whatever language you need for the job (microservices)
    - scaling
    - easily revert to previous version if you need to
