How do you do Drupal development currently? Have you ever gotten bit by the "worked on my machine" bug when moving from development to live? What if I told you we could make those days a thing of the past, and make it consistently deployable across your team to boot? Developing in a virtual machine can provide us with these benefits and many more.
We will talk about:
- What a virtualized development environment is and how it compares to traditional methods
- How to spin up a quick development virtual machine using Vagrant and Drupal VM
- Things to consider if an off-the-shelf image doesn't fit your needs
