Managing a Vagrant Environment

Vagrant lets us provision development environments quickly and easily through code and the command line. One benefit of this is that it allows us to turn off our guest hosts so we can better manage our system resources. In this hands-on lab, we spend some time making changes to our Vagrant environment, before shutting it down for the day.
