When Vagrant is set up correctly, it works great. A recent project I worked at was beset by Vagrant issues because the offshore development team rolled out the Vagrant solution while they were still working on it: each night, they would tweak it, and each morning we would type `vagrant up` and be hit by a rolling screen of errors. With the time difference, we would have three hours for them to fix it, or spend a day unable to develop. I actually wound up typing more at the command-line than I had before then using Virtualenv and Homebrew. This situation lasted two weeks, and taught me two things: never roll out Vagrant before it’s ready as it will break the whole process, and making any changes to the Vagrant file may still break everything.
