Let's face it development is fun but configuring environments and infrastructure takes all the fun out of programming. How often have you spent days trying to figure out which settings for your NoSQL database, new library, source control service only to realize that the solution involved only typing the 5-10 characters in the correct sequence. You are not alone!
This session will go through a couple of different approaches to addressing common development infrastructure headaches. We will start out with common problems encountered setting up your workstation involving issues with the IDE, Source Control System, Bug Tracking systems, environmental variables, build tools such as Maven, as well as a couple of other common problem areas. Then we will talk about how developing in a virtualized world attempts to address these problems with virtual machines and cloud platforms as well as the new problems they create. Finally, we will wrap up with the steps necessary to setup a NoSQL database.
