Automate your Drupal development environment

Maintaining a big IT infrastructure is only possible with efficient automation tools. For our freistilbox hosting platform, we use Chef and other datacenter tools to automate administration to an extent that only 2 full-time sysadmins take care of hundreds of servers.
But you as a developer can use these tools as well to make your development and testing much more efficient and pleasant. As a bonus, you can mirror production environments so you won't run into the dreaded "worked on my laptop" problem when you deploy to live servers.
In this talk, I'll explain how you can deploy a consistent Drupal development and testing environment with minimal effort by adding IT automation applications like Chef and Vagrant to your toolbox.
