Getting release and CI and debug behavior all working in Docker is rough. It’s a very opaque experience. You can’t see, so you have to do everything in baby steps, lest you have a problem you can’t track down at all. This is worth it, right? It’s satisfying when it works, but I feel like we’re solving the problem of configuration drift or environment mismatch by merely shrinking the part you write once and then don’t touch again.
