Make your local dev environment match your server, and ditch MAMP/WAMP/XAMPP/(?)AMP for good!

Now titled "Dev/Stage/Prod Parity with Vagrant"

The Vagrant box I demonstrated is available at Screencast coming soon, I promise!

Many experienced web developers (Drupal or otherwise) can attest to that inevitable moment when pushing changes from a local development environment (where they worked) to staging/production fail due to a server OS/configuration mismatch. In this talk, Mike Bybee will discuss how to create a virtualized local environment with Vagrant that can not only match one's existing staging and/or production server environments, but also automate Drupal site setup in a repeatable, disposable way (the inspiration for the name "Vagrant") that can be shared with other developers on your team.
