Me:
*spins up Vscode*
*spins up postman*
*opens terminal, spins up docker*
*spins up frontend dev server*
*spins up backend dev server*
*opens new chrome window with not less than 20 tabs*

    That gif looks so familiar. Where is it from?

    Write a script to do it for you, sounds boring having to do that every time you want to work on your project.

    @David-Chuka I had to go through a similar process before when I wanted to work on my project. One day I just got tired of it and wrote a few scripts to start my backend and frontend on a single command, it's way better now.

    @ItsaMeTuni it's part ritual. Like an ancient eastern intoned mantra. Puts me right in the correct mindset.

    I came here to scoff at all the anti docker sentiment, but I can't find it

    @TheCommoner282 Depending on the company environment, working without docker/compose can be hell.

    Me before docker: "WTF why doesn't this work" - "oh you need Python 2.7 for this service, and Python 3.5 for the other" - "but even so, PHP API also gives errors" - "yeah we now require ext-soap" - "hmm OK which imagemagick binary do I need?"

    Me after docker: "systemctl restart allmyshit.service" (we have a repo with the docker compose setup, and a wrapper service which pulls the latest configs & runs the containers)

    Docker can be super frustrating to set up and debug, but if the DevOps department got their stuff in order and all the versions worked out, it's pure bliss.

    @bittersweet I know, I love docker for that very reason. I am usually building container for everything. Still it is surprising. Every time I mentioned docker on devrant pure metal purists came out from every little hiding hole.

    @TheCommoner282 docker is currently ruining my life. Everything worked few days ago, but now it can't even connect to my database. I'm stressed out.
