Looking to move to a more professional and extendable Drupal development environment? Regardless of if you're a Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux user, DrupalVM might be the solution you're looking for!. You likely already know about the pains you have to go through simply to get a local Drupal development environment up-and-running, let alone installing things like Drush, SOLR or Varnish. This one-day training will introduce you to a more native way of developing Drupal locally using the same environment that it will likely run in when deployed - Linux! We'll introduce some command-line basics, explain how a Drupal site actually ends up serving a page, and show you how you can run your own Linux-based Drupal environment locally, using Windows.

At the end of this course, you'll have a local Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP Drupal site up and running.

  • Virtualbox installed and working.
  • Vagrant installed and working.
  • The DrupalVM box downloaded.

See the attached PDF or the DrupalVM Getting Started Guide for how to do this.

It is imperative that these tasks are done prior to arriving at the training venue, as they are large downloads. Time will not be taken at the start of the class to complete these prerequisites.
