Need a quick MySQL 5.7 PHP Vagrant environment?

The Laravel folks are not letting the grass grow under their feet. The popular PHP Framework (motto ‘The PHP Framework For Web Artisans’) wraps their framework and the recently released MySQL 5.7 server software in a Vagrant image called Homestead ready for you to use.

I created a new directory for my new Laravel work, cd-ed into it, and then issued vagrant init laravel/homestead. As quick as my hotel wi-fi could support, I had 5.7, PHP 5.6.15 plus more on an Ubuntu 14.04 LTS virtual machine.

So if you want to easily try MySQL 5.7 or Laravel please Laravel Homestead a try
