After demonstrating how this setup can simplify your local development process, we'll use Ansible to provision a remote instance on DigitalOcean.

For a long while, developers would work directly on running servers or cobble together their own version of the production environment locally, often writing ad hoc scripts and tools to smoothen their development process. This is no longer necessary in a world of virtual machines. In this section, we will learn how to use Vagrant to emulate a production environment within your development environment...
