DevOps isn’t just where your application is delivered, how it's tested, or how you end up provisioning remote development environments for it. Local development solutions are paramount, but like everything else, there are a ton of options with slightly different assumptions and philosophies for how your work is supported.

Should you work in a true development environment locally? Or should you treat local like a staging environment - as close to production as possible? What tools do you use, and at what level of abstraction? Ultimately, there are a lot of tradeoffs in this discussion, largely revolving around how much attention you give to setting up your environments compared to your application itself.

This week, Alec Reynolds and Mike Pirog discuss Lando, a Docker-based local development solution integrated with It’s an open-source project that provides an abstraction layer on top of Docker and Docker compose that attempts to simplify repeatable local environments.
