This will be a hands-on "deep dive" into Lando as a local development tool. Assuming a basic understanding of Docker and "containerization", and some familiarity with git+composer-based Drupal dev workflow, we will get into the details of using Lando to manage some Docker-based workflows.

There are many other good localdev toolkits out there (not all Docker-based), and even some best practices emerging around "vanilla" docker-compose workflows for Drupal development.

We will focus on Lando as the tool that's recently worked best for me, as a thin layer on top of Docker Compose, adding a lot of convenience without hiding too much of the details of Docker.

You are encouraged to find what works best for you, but if you are considering Lando, please attend this presentation!
