Oh, My! Oh-My-Vagrant (with live demos!)

Oh-My-Vagrant development environments for hackers

Learn how to get a Vagrant environment running as quickly as possible, so that you can start iterating on your project right away. I'll show you an upstream project called Oh-My-Vagrant that does the work and adds all the tweaks to glue different Vagrant provisioners together perfectly. I'll also demonstrate some tools such as vscreen and vcssh which make it possible to connect to single and multiple numbers of vagrant vm's more easily. We'll do all of this using the libvirt plugin to vagrant, which makes it possible to use the virsh and virt-manager tools in parallel with your vagrant toolset.

After this session, you'll walk away wondering how you ever did any work without these tools! I'll explain and demonstrate many examples on how this makes integration with configuration management tools easier, and how you can use these techniques to simulate clusters of machines running containers! This talk will include live demos of building docker containers, adding in config mgmt, and all glued together with vagrant and oh-my-vagrant.
