Have you ever wished that your local development sandbox could look exactly like production, but you've got a mismatch between your local OS and your production OS? And what about the age old "it works on my machine" excuse that quite often stems from differences between developer sandboxes? Many have turned to virtualization, creating a machine image that can be passed around the team. But who manages the template? How do you keep things in sync? In this session, we'll explore Vagrant (, an open source tool that allows you to easily create and manage virtual development environments that can be provisioned on demand and "thrown away" when no longer needed. Our agenda will include: * Creating new base OS templates using the Vagrant Veewee plugin * Creating a new development box using Vagrant * Provisioning the box using Puppet * Provisioning the box using Chef * Deploying a simple web application to a multi-box development environment * Packaging and distributing the box within your team
