Sandbox CI/CD Environments for Everyone

October 27 10:15 AM-11:00 AM

Watch the session video here.

If your project is hosted with one of the BIG-3 Drupal hosting providers, then your team is most likely already enjoying some sort of sandboxing solution provided by them. You commit code, a CI build runs, and a new sandbox (CD / multidev / on-the-fly) environment is magically provisioned for you. Life is good! Right?

Sandbox environments improve your development workflow with:

  • Enhanced code reviews
  • Continuous QA
  • Automated VRT/BDD testing
  • Demos

Every development team should be able to use these features in a simple and coherent way regardless of where their projects are hosted. How?

In this session we will cover:

  • Standardizing your team’s development environments and tooling across macOS, Windows and Linux with Docksal
  • Embracing automation over documentation
  • Launching a server to host sandboxes (in a few clicks)
  • Using the same exact local config for CI environments (with CircleCI free tier)
  • Bonus: Fitting lots of sandboxes on a single server, while keeping the infrastructure costs low
