All engineering team aim to be productive. This is the reason why language frameworks exists; to speed up the time taken to deliver a feature or product. The developers behind these frameworks Ruby on Rails or Php Laravel have expressed this notion and helped their community to work faster by preferring convention over configuration.

But a lot of time is still spent on configuring the development and staging environment. This warranted solutions such as virtual machines and containers like Docker. Devop engineers have had a hard time battling and ensuring that development environment match one-to-one with the production environment, so as to measure and test behaviour of the system before users access them. While this is good, there is a better and easier solution.

If you were a Php developer (language doesn’t matter here) and you use CakePhp for development, wouldn’t it be easier to get a environment that comes pre-installed with your framework’s development version? That would save you ton of time in configuration your production server and shoot the productivity of your team high into the heavens. Now you can focus on building the product.
