From Vagrant to Production

Bucket loads of information, sometimes too fast to be able to take it all in, but useful nonetheless. Some stuff here I'm already doing, which is reassuring, and others are things I may need to research more to find out where I can improve my workflow.

Quite complex for 40mins, but very to the point and enjoyable.

Very useful and relevant content, however a little tarnished by pacing towards the end.

That was a great talk. Funny, engaging and very educational!

Great overview of devops toolbox, with enough detail to provide colour while still being able to cover lots of topics. I feel I know enough to go away and read more about each tool/technique as needed.

Nice review about tools, which were used/can be used to makes deployment process easier and automated.

Good talk where I learnt a couple of interesting things that I didn't already know despite using Vagrant for a while. I didn't previously know about all the plugins that you mentioned such as cachier and I didn't know that there was an AWS provider for Vagrant, how exciting!

It was a nice talk about Vagrant and Puppet, although it was too complex and you speed up too much in the second half. But, to be honest, I felt a little bit like in 2013. Puppet is not particularly easy to learn (and I thing the complexity of things you showed in your presentation proves it) and Vagrant has a lot of disadvantages. Therefore, this tandem cannot be called the "perfect development stack". It could have been three years later, but not in 2016.

It's a shame that the audience might have left your talk with an impression that Vagrant+Puppet are perfect and that they should try them. Well, they're not perfect at all and you didn't say a word about disadvantages of them.

Great talk. Worth it for the vagrant-cachier tip alone, which i priced today knocks a very useful amount of time off upping some of our Vagrant VMs. Thank you.

Good talk did struggle with the pace and complexity in stages though.

Really /very/ good talk from - whom my co-attending colleague described as - the Henning Wenn of PHP. Really very funny and engaging, which made the otherwise perhaps heavy topic of machine and system automation really fun to get to grips with. We both really enjoyed this and it's meant we've gone from 0 to vagrant in development in the time it took to take the bus home. Thank you, Stephan Hochdörfer!

Somehow managed to cover a wide range of topics. Rushed at times, but what do you expect when there is so much to cover. Gave a good overview of how you can integrate all of the tools together.
