Maintaining Homestead

Maintaining Homestead

Laravel's Homestead project is the second most downloaded public Vagrant environment. Initially designed to be a full-featured local development environment focused on making Laravel developer's experience easier Homestead has grown into a solid, well-rounded LAMP stack Vagrant environment for nearly any PHP project.

Join us as we review the features and inner workings of Homestead, explore some features you may not be aware of, and even take a trip deep into the operations process of how we build and deliver the best vagrant environment for the PHP community. We'll also cover extending Homestead and making it work for your custom applications and how you can easily share the customized environment with your teammates, coworkers, or contributors.
