Somehow, I keep having this conversation with friends & acquaintances. Maybe it's because I've been through several (failed) startups myself. Maybe it's simply because I live in San Francisco and everyone here dreams about their brilliant idea that's going to make them a million dollars.
I've spoken before (several times actually) about Pantheon, a high performance web host. They're an amazing platform with many awesome features, but one lacking feature is an easy way to do local development. Kalabox 2 promises to change this, but as we went to press Pantheon integration wasn't working yet. The good news: there's an easy way to do this.
