Bitnami — a developer’s good friend

Coffee is still a developer’s best friend, but Bitnami is definitely in my circle of friends.

Over at Bitnami they have preconfigured virtual machines for software development. If you want to get up and running on a different software stack quickly it’s a good place to go. It’s not a bad place to spend a Saturday night either (if you’re the kind of person who lists websites in your circle of friends).

Their offerings are comprehensive, convenient, and free: Wordpress, Joomla!, Elk, Rails, Tomcat, etc. And if you don’t want to spin up an entire VM, Bitnami can install the stack into an existing environment.
