DDEV elevator pitch
Beginning of DDEV
Docker use cases
Listener Marc van Gend “I’d love to hear about the current state of the project, given the change of ownership. Is it healthy financially?”
Listener Josh Miller “Randy has a long history with Drupal, outdating most. https://drupal.org/u/rfay a little over 16 years. How did his contribution start, and how has it changed? Does he still build with Drupal?”
Listener Stephen Cross “I easily got DDEV running on Raspberry Pi, while other tools do not run simply. How has ARM adoption been?”
Josh on Twitter “Will docker work on new processors?”
