This year for WordCamp Grand Rapids, it is being held from Friday, August 15th – Sunday, August 17th and is taking place at the DeVos Center on Grand Valley State University’s Pew Campus.
During WordCamp, you will have the chance to see WDS team member, Brad Parbs, speak on Extremely Powerful Local WordPress Development With Vagrant and Friends. Here is a short description of his presentation —
If you’re developing anything for yourself or for clients, you want to develop locally. This prevents disasters, allows you to develop more quickly, and a lot more benefits.
By using Vagrant and its friends, you can easily create a super-powerful local development toolkit just like the pros.
In this talk, we’ll walk through all of the benefits of Vagrant, how to easily get it setup, and the wide range of complementary tools and process you can add to your workflow to become a local development master.
You can see Brad on Saturday, August 16th at 9:15 AM in the Development Track.
You will also be able to catch Brad at the after party on Saturday, as well as contributor day on Sunday. Feel free to walk up to him and pick his brain about all things WordPress! He’s excited to connect with people he hasn’t met and to reconnect with those he has!
