Mitchell Hashimoto presents "Automated Development Environments with Vagrant"

7:00 pm: meet, greet & eat 7:15 pm: intros 7:30 pm: main presentation Q&A after the talk TOPIC
Unfortunately, many developers today still manually set up development environments by hand: manually installing servers, following some unclear README, etc. In this talk, I present Vagrant, a tool for automatically creating development environments, as a way to bring repeatability and stability to your entire team's development environments. The benefits of Vagrant are far reaching, affecting developers, operations, and the overall business.
Vagrant is an open source tool that has been around for over 3 years. It is in use by thousands of companies, such as EdgeCast, Expedia, Yammer, Mozilla, BBC, and more.
