Provisioning VMs Quickly with Vagrant and CFEngine
During this hands-on tutorial you will learn how to quickly provision local test/development/demo environments using Vagrant and Virtualbox. will cover provisioning and configuring machines quickly using Vagrant and CFEngine. You will learn how Vagrant and Virtualbox can be used to bring up local development/test/demo environments. You will also learn how CFEngine can be leveraged to automate configuration of the environment after it has been initialized. You will take away a multi-vm test environment managed by CFEngine.
This tutorial targets technical people who need repeatable test environments and are comfortable using the Linux command-line. These environments can speed developer on-boarding, play a role in continuous integration, or just provide quick sandboxes for experimentation. No previous knowledge of Vagrant or CFEngine is required.
Attendees should bring a laptop with at least 10G of available disk space (SSD strongly recommended, but not required), and have current versions of Vagrant and Virtualbox installed.
