I don’t want to spend too much time explaining what vagrant is so here is their own introduction:

Vagrant provides easy to configure, reproducible, and portable work environments built on top of industry-standard technology and controlled by a single consistent workflow to help maximize the productivity and flexibility of you and your team.

To achieve its magic, Vagrant stands on the shoulders of giants. Machines are provisioned on top of VirtualBox, VMware, AWS, or any other provider. Then, industry-standard provisioning tools such as shell scripts, Chef, or Puppet, can be used to automatically install and configure software on the machine.

With the New Year new challenges come. In addition to keep working on the cool projects I have working on during 2015 (napalm, sir, pyfg and many others) I plan to work on some other cool ideas I have in mind (more on this soon). I also plan to try to blog a bit about what I am doing, ideas, architectures, etc… We will see how it goes.
