Docker compose can be a really powerful tool. Typically, when I’m getting ready to create a K8s cluster, I will create Dockerfiles for all the individual services. While I’m working on this, I will begin adding them to a docker-compose file. It’s an extremely useful method for spinning up multiple containers with a single command. Once all the containers are running and working properly, I’ll know everything is good to go and I’m ready for next steps. Also, if an application doesn’t need to rapidly scale horizontally, then maybe docker compose is all you’ll need. As much as get excited…
