Please have Vagrant and VirtualBox installed ahead of the workshop, if possible. We'll be providing a virtual machine (on USB keys) with the lab exercises. Having Vagrant ready to run the VM will help us get started quickly. That said, we'll have a few minutes of slide presentation to get started. You might be able to get things working then. If you're unable to get Vagrant working, we'll have you pair up with a neighbor.
For those installing Virtual box and Vagrant for the first time in Mac OS X
For Home Brew users as opposed to Mac Ports Users do the following:
Vagrant uses Virtualbox to manage the virtual dependencies. You can directly download virtualbox and install or use homebrew for it.
Now install Vagrant either from the website or use homebrew for installing it.
Vagrant-Manager helps you manage all your virtual machines in one place directly from the menubar.
