Provisioning Proper Development Environments

In this session I will introduce you to several concepts that generally fall under the phrase DevOps.  I will show you how to reliably create on demand development environments for use in your Drupal experiments and client work.  We will explore the shiny side of impressive buzz words like Vagrant, VirtualBox, VMWare and Chef.  I'll show you how to use Virtualization to integrate with other open source projects.  By leveraging the experience and knowledge of these other communities you receive a better set of tools that allow you to focus on the parts of Drupal you love.

This talk will give you the foundation for creating environments on your local machines specific to Drupal.  What you will learn here easily translates to building out your production level environments.  We will touch on concepts for unifying small development shops and teams of distributed developers.  The key concepts we insist on are consistency, repeatability, quality and working intelligently to solve problems once.

All of the code and management is represented in to allow you to walk away with fully functional infrastructure represented as code.  This session is historically followed by a BoF where I will work with you individually to get up and running.
