Maintaining a consistent development environment is hard—especially for
junior developers and designers with no interest in system administration.

In this talk, I'll show you how my team develops locally, in VPN (Virtual
Private Network) connected Virtual Machines, and how we make a team distributed in 5 cities feel a little like we're all working in the same

We'll touch on VirtualBox, Puppet, Vagrant, dpkg/APT, Amazon AWS (EC2, especially), IRC, HTTP Proxies, and lots of other fun tech.

I really enjoyed the talk, great amount of technical information which I wasn't expecting, but was a pleasant surprise.

The subject is interesting but the slides are lacking technical content/examples.

Also the talk is hard to follow when English is not your mother language because the speaker talks really fast and slides (or lack of) won't help catching up.

The talk description or title might use a little clarification that you cover real world high-level implementation advice, and now low-level code. But that shouldn't affect the info you presented, which will prove very insightful for anyone who is on this path.

I was, sort of, expecting a more detailed, low-level talk, from the description. Maybe next time the description could be amended to make that more clear.

That said, was still a valuable overview of the challenges of distributed development teams, and the real-world solutions used to solve those problems.

Nadine from Germany// good informations, got new ideas. But it's hard to follow the discussion when you not a native speaker because the people talked very fast and not to the other people in the room. Repeating the questions would be helpful
