Speed up your Testcontainers tests

How you can drastically reduce the runtime for your Testcontainers tests

This is the second part of a two part series about Testcontainers. In this part I will among other things show you some tricks to get your Testcontainers start much faster. Intro In the previous blog post, Getting Started with Testcontainers, I described what the Testcontainers framework is and how to get started using it in your project.
