Portland WordPress-Dev Meetup: Vagrant, Your New Best Friend
Pine Room at Lincoln Building 206 SW 5th Ave, Portland, OR
Jeremy Felt will be talking about Vagrant at our next meetup:
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.
