When developing with Drupal, having a system that allows you to spin off new development instances is key. There are several solutions for creating development environments with Drupal and one of them is DDEV. This tutorial video shows you how to quickly set up a Drupal development environment that you can scale as your needs grow.

Topics covered in this tutorial include:

  • Using Docker and DDEV-Local to build a container-based drupal development environment
