I maintain a bunch of Drupal sites for friends and family, but due to the nature of these, they often have sporadic development.

This post describes how I automated and simplififed the process of updating many drupal sites using docker and automated deployment using the Wercker service.
I've already espounded the advantages of docker in other posts, but I'd thought it might be useful to share (and document for my own benefit), how I've been running my own personal drupal projects using docker.

This post details the docker-compose config I use for my drupal projects.
