Moving sites from your development environment to a staging or production server can be time-consuming and challenging. This session will provide you with easy-to-use tools and workflow to bridge the gap between development and operations.

Vagrant and VirtualBox: Spin up pre-configured virtual servers on your workstation, saving the hassle of either a local AMP stack or a remote development server. Use your preferred development tools alongside a production-ready server environment.
Puppet: Automatically configure the virtual environment on your workstation and keep it in sync with your staging and production server configuration.
Git: Use lightweight version control to help you safely and easily move code from development to production with a minimum of fuss.

At the end of the session, attendees will have a basic repository containing both project code as well as the virtualization and configuration scripts ready to be be used as a template for their next project.
