Introduction for Developers

If you want to follow The Twelve-Factor App method for building software, you also want to adhere to factor X. Dev/prod parity. If you are running docker-compose, vagrant or local virtualenv (of any kind) without using containers, you are not following this approach (or at least this factor).

As a developer, you need to work with Kubernetes during development time, too.

To get a close-to-production development environment, kindly ask your DevOps or operations staff to provide you with a Deckfile (or create it yourself). This will finally remove the troubles in the transition of new Apps, features or bug fixes from development to production.

Getdeck is here to make it convenient and rapid to create a Kubernetes-based development infrastructure for you and your team, without having to deal with all the tools.
