Discussion on: Are you using Docker for local development?

I use it for local development with VS code remote-containers plugin.

It enables testing new environments/technolgies quickly, cleanup is much easier compared to cleanup on the host system and you can reuse the image for your CI/CD pipelines.

Also, it can serve as documentation for the infrastructure required to launch your projects.

Mostly we use for local development as some infrastructure is unreachable from local environments.
