Vagrant with Mitchell Hashimoto

Mitchell Hashimoto is the founder of HashiCorp, a company whose goal is to make the best DevOps tools in the world, including Vagrant. Prior to HashiCorp, Mitchell spent five years as a web developer and another four as an operations engineer. He speaks at conferences worldwide and is the author of Vagrant: Up an Running.


Vagrant is a powerful tool for building reproducible and portable work environments. You can re-use your existing configuration management scripts (Chef, Puppet, etc.) to deploy development and test environments in VirtualBox, AWS, VMware, and more. If you're a developer, Vagrant will isolate dependencies and their configuration within a single disposable, consistent environment, without sacrificing any of the tools you're used to working with. If you're an operations engineer, Vagrant gives you a disposable environment and consistent workflow for developing and testing infrastructure management scripts. If you are not currently using Vagrant, you need to come and learn what you are missing.

We may also learn a little about HashiCorp's latest tool, Packer. Packer is an open source tool for creating machine images. It uses a single portable input format – a template – to generate the images for multiple platforms in parallel, so you can create identical AMIs, VMware machines, Vagrant boxes, etc. all at once. 

This is a paid event to help cover travel costs for Mitchell and future speakers.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
