6:30 - 7:45 The Developing is Easier with Vagrant | Philip Chase

Philip Chase is the Assistant Director of Clinical and Translational Science Information Technology at the University of Florida.

One of the primary functions of his department is to produce software applications that helps health care providers manage their data and patients.

Philip's presentation will describe how Vagrant is used in his department to manage the infrastructure (os, build environment,etc.) for software development.

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.

7:45 - 8:00 Open discussion, meet and greet someone new
