DevOps as a culutre has proven to help you ship faster, creating a better feedback mechanism between developers, operations and the systems they work on. It has been around for a while, but it is still not something that teams have been able to adopt completely and practice on a day-to-day basis, despite of its proven results. There is a gap between developers and operations, which needs to be closed.
In this talk, we will see how Vagrant can help developers and operations individually, and then how it can be used to bridge that gap for developers and operations to work more closely with each other. We will see how Vagrant can prove to be an effective tool for developers as it can offer cheap throw away environments that closely resembles production. We will also see how operations can make use of Vagrant for quickly testing out configuration management changes. And finally, we will discuss some advanced use-cases of Vagrant.
