Hands-on experiment building microservices and cloud native applications

Simplified Docker Compose for local development

We now have a special branch in the gameon repository that contains a snapshot of a smooth end-to-end local development flow with docker-compose.

> git clone
> cd gameon
> ./ up


Yes, yes. Kubernetes is next, we promise. But with this revision of the Docker Compose path, we dropped a lot of complexity (bye, Amalgam8!) and created a simplified path for getting started. The has been updated with the new TL;DR ainstructions, and they are ever so much better (and more concise!).

We'll try to cut “releases” of the gameon repository a little more frequently, so there is always a last-known-good state to work from (rather than always using whatever the most recent / experimental docker images are).


Stay tuned! Enjoy! Go play!
