Vagrant and Ansible for Local Development

If you’re using Ansible to provision/manage your infrastructure it only makes sense to utilize the same setup locally instead of having to go through all of the same configuration again. It eliminates a bunch of the “works on my machine” issues, it documents the entire process, makes it easier for new developers to get up to speed, etc.

Easier screenshot sharing on OSX

I share screenshots fairly often throughout the day when I'm working on projects. Most of my communication is via email and chat so sometimes it's easier to just share a screenshot instead of trying to explain what I'm seeing. OS X already makes it incredibly easy to take screenshots but navigating through finder when you want to upload the screenshot isn't as smooth but easily fixed with Stacks, a built in Dock feature.
