Hey this post is great. I also need another clarification. What's the difference between a local and development env? Are they same or has a difference?

In our team local and dev are not so much the same, because dev is to test the server environment - such as speed/performance of the server. Ofcourse also in case the local and server configuration is different - which is a thing that now disappears if you use Docker, but mainly it is about to test the real performance of the server or the process of upgrading production with new version... But what local and dev have the same is that it is a playground for the developer(s).
