Many software projects suffer from a lack of a good “Quick Start” environment. Complex systems can have obstacles such as obscure dependencies and error-prone procedures. Distributing a portable reference environment solves this problem for users and developers alike but it is not without pitfalls. The presentation will cover best-practices for creating a VM, live CD, Docker app or cloud deployment that will be reliable, lean, and most importantly, useful. Such a platform is ideal for demos, tutorials, testing, and more. Segments include:

* Uses for virtual appliances
* Recommended tools
* Nuances of common hypervisors
* Network configuration pitfalls
* Minimizing disk space & memory requirements
* And many other tips
