Vagrant: Up and Running: Create and Manage Virtualized Development Environments (英语)
Mitchell Hashimoto is an operations engineer and prolific open source contributor. Mitchell created Vagrant, a tool for creating and distributing virtualized development environments. Vagrant is used by companies such as Mozilla, RackSpace, and Nokia, and many more. Mitchell currently works full time as an operations engineer for Kiip, a mobile rewards network. Mitchell also enjoys speaking at conferences about open source, DevOps, and Vagrant, and has spoken at Velocity Conf, FOSDEM, RubyConf, and more.
In about 4 hours, I was able to work through the first six of seven chapters of the book, including time to experiment with creating and destroying Vagrant environments. The last little exercise was creating a two-node cluster, one of which installed and ran MySQL, the other installed and ran Apache. And then confirming that networking was running properly between them, and the host. Along the way, I won't say I gained a complete education on the ins and outs of Vagrant, but I learned much, and now feel confident that I can go to Vagrant's online documentation and find any further information I need. This book did a great job of explaining the why as well as the how of Vagrant.
Considering I got this as a Kindle book for about half the print price, it was really a great bargain. If you're looking to bootstrap your knowledge of Vagrant, I recommend this book.
(One little sidenote: If you try the hostonly example, and the 192.168.33.* subnet doesn't work for you, try 192.168.133.*.)
It is a good overview -- more complete than the web site, but some of the examples and commands are out-dated. I am having to go through both the web site and the book, making notes about the "correct" commands. This was not a complete waste of money, but it certainly was not the "valuable resource" I was hoping for.
I contribute to the open source projects I use and like. I guess this was my contribution to Vagrant.
Don't get me wrong about Vagrant. I still am quite happy with what it is doing for me! I just wish the book was up-to-date.
