From Docker-MediaWiki to Docker-Dev to custom solutions, there are many approaches available to combine container technology with your MediaWiki development practices. We'll take an in-depth look at how we created a custom docker-based development environment that works with our production architecture and allows us to deploy into AWS environments.
We'll specifically address some of the limitations of working with AWS Elastic Container Services (ECS) and the serverless "Fargate" launch type.
