Dockerize your test environment
a workshop by Nick Lang

Ever had a situation where your tests pass locally. But once you've deployed your app it crashes in a way you didn't expect? Running your tests in SQLite is nice cause it's always in memory. But SQLite, MySQL, Postgres all different ways of handling data. Installing all these different databases just for tests doesn't make sense either. Using Docker we can simulate production environments to ensure production like execution of your tests.

In this workshop we will work on how to create a production like environment to run our tests in.
