Using Docker as a basic Node developing environment

For the past few days, I’ve been working on this small NodeJS project. Node is a very powerful and fast JavaScript runtime environment, and it’s gotten a lot of attention these last few years as a credible back-end for Web infrastructures - so I’ve decided to try it out. As a Django developer, I’m used to having all these tweaks that automatically set your project up and running - whereas Node does the minimum for the developer, and you have to set everything around your program yourself: database, session management… So I decided to set them up myself, and to wrap them in a Docker image.

 Docker: the whys

During my time at Weezevent, we were using Docker environments to manage our API servers. Last week, the new project I’ve been talking to you about was a cool opportunity for me to dust up this Docker knowledge I acquired and to create my own Docker environment. Now, for those who

I’ve been studying software engineering for two years now - including a 6-month internship in a leading tech startup -, after a few prep years studying maths and physics. I quickly leaned toward web technologies: NodeJS, Django, Symfony, AngularJS…

As I began to master languages, processes and technologies, I realized how cool it would be to share info on a blog - but I didn’t feel I was relevant yet. So I’m starting this blog not in the objective of wanting to school anyone, but in the objective of sharing my discoveries in the fantastic world of software. I’ll be sharing what I think is relevant in this domain - feel free to hit me up on Twitter at @grlneric to point out anything interesting.

Right now, I’m working on a small
