Talk: DRIVE with Vagrant and Ansible

If you ever heard (or used) the excuse “it works on my machine”, you know how hard it is to manage different environments, specially if there are many developers involved in a project. Luckily, we finally have tools and processing power to create development environments that are easy to share and maintain across multiple developers in different platforms.

This session will walk you through the benefits of using environments that are disposable, replicable, isolated and versioned (DRIVE) for development, showing how this type of environment can be created using Vagrant and Ansible as tools.
