Session description

A local development server has become essential to working with WordPress. There are many different options for users such as MAMP/WAMP, Vagrant/VVV, Homestead, Docker, etc.

Over the last year while working on the Web Development team at Lorain County Community College, I have found Vagrant or VVV (Varying Vagrant Vagrants) is a streamlined tool that allows us to rapidly build development environments on both Mac and Windows. I will be discussing how Vagrant can aid you in streamlining your local development environment process.

In addition, I will be demonstrating how to install Vagrant and what tools can be used to quickly generate your local web development environment for your specific project. So bring your computers and questions so that by the end of session I hope you will walk away with a local development environment you can leverage to accelerate your WordPress projects.
