Learn how to create an environment where your production code will be deployed to using Vagrant and VirtualBox. This setup will be used for the rest of the course demos.
- [Instructor] Before I jump into any exercises,…I just want to take a moment…to talk about my development environment…you'll see me using in this class.…Now in particular, I'll be using Vagrant and VirtualBox…to manage machines that I want to configure with Chef.…However, there are many ways to go about doing this.…You could for example, use a cloud provider…like Amazon Web Services to actually create the machines…that you'll configure with Chef.…In my case, I'm going to use Vagrant and VirtualBox…because they're free and easy to get started with.…
So to use these tools, you should understand…that I've installed them on my machine,…and that prepares me to actually go through…and launch a virtual machine that I can configure.…To to any of this, if you're going to follow along,…I recommend checking the minimum requirements…for both of these tools.…For example, you'll need to make sure…that your BIOS supports hardware virtualization.…After making sure that your system meets these requirements,…you can then go through and attempt to install these tools.…
