Instant Developer Gratification with PHP and Docker Based Containers

I have been doing some PHP development lately and I wanted to share with everyone what I consider to be the perfect flow for using OpenShift and PHP together.
Using docker as a development target certainly has benefits. For instance, I didn’t have to mess around with installing Apache, mod_php, mysql, etc etc on my local machine. I was able to just simple target a docker container and move on my merry way.
However, this has some downsides to it as well. Mainly, it was slowing my flow down. I wanted instant gratification so when I save a file, it should be instantly available on my deployment target.
Well folks, I am happy to report that we had added some features to OpenShift 3 to support this exact use case.
I made a video that explains how to get this set up from ground zero to truly enable developers to take full advantage of the platform for local development. In fact, I enjoy it so much that I absolutely prefer it over install a full LAMP/WAMP/Whatever stack locally.
