Feb. WP Developer Meetup - Vagrant

This month we are honored to have superstar Jeremy Felt from 10up come speak to us about Vagrant http://www.vagrantup.com/. His blurb is below. You do not want to miss this one!


Development environments are not often one size fits all. While having a LAMP stack available on your local machine is great, having access to the many variants in the wild is better. Working with many variants *and* being able to sandbox them away from your operating system is the best.

In this session, we'll show you how to replace common development environments like MAMP or XAMPP with the much more versatile Vagrant. You'll gain access to a world of various development options while simultaneously keeping your computer clean. When you walk out the door, you'll have a wonderful local WordPress development environment running nginx, mysql, php-fpm and memcached -- or anything else you want -- so that you can better develop for the technology in use on the web today.

And don't worry, this session is operating system agnostic - Mac OS X, Windows and Linux can all be friends with Vagrant.

    Great, quick presentation on Vagrant with lots of hands-on time to mess around. Great group!

    Back is acting up. Sorry I can't make it, especially after working out a bunch of virtualization issues on my Vaio.

    I had a little trouble running through the setup on my Windows machine. Looks like you need to configure Git to not convert files to Windows style line endings. I wrote up what I did to fix it and put it in a Gist. Hopefully it's helpful to someone :)

    Hey Seattle!

    I should have mentioned this earlier, but as Hilary noted in the last comment, it would be fantastic if you have time to go through this post - http://jeremyfelt.com/code/2013...­ - and install the required materials before the meetup. I'm planning on talking for about 15 minutes or so and then have plenty of time to help answer questions and get anybody up and running with Vagrant.

    If you don't have time to get everything installed, I'll have a USB hard drive with me with Virtual Box, Vagrant and the initial provisioned box, so it will be possible to follow along. Just a lot easier if it's all done beforehand.

    Bonus - if you do get through all the instructions, this is all easy enough that you probably won't even need me. :)

    Looking forward to tomorrow, see you all then!

    Folks should probably read Jeremy's blog post at http://jeremyfelt.com/code/2013...­ and try to get as much of the steps done as possible, BEFORE coming to the meetup. The WiFi setup at Alibi will choke if all 30+ of us try to download ~750MB (VirtualBox + Vagrant + the Ubuntu 'box') at the same time.
