Vagrant: Up and Running

Discover why Vagrant is a must-have tool for thousands of developers and ops engineers. With this hands-on guide, you’ll learn how to use this open source software to quickly build a virtual machine for any purpose—including a completely sandboxed, fully provisioned development environment right on your desktop.

Vagrant creator Mitchell Hashimoto shows you how to share a virtual machine image with members of your team, set up a separate virtualization for each project, and package virtual machines for use by others. Start creating development environments with Vagrant, and learn how to save time, avoid frustration, and prevent costly errors.
