Vagrant and Ansible for Local Development

In ansible, development, vagrant

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

In tips

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.
