Posted on Wed, February 25, 2015 in Development Tips by Alum

I’ve used excellent software like WAMP and MAMP in my local development environment for years.

And let’s not forget those acronyms leave out some important players like postgres, nginx, or rails! I consider Vagrant as the pilot for my virtual machines.
