When using Vagrant, being able to sync applications, infrastructure, and other important files between your workstation and the resulting environment is paramount. It ensures that any changes we make to our working environment will persist after a vagrant destroy — after all, the Vagrant environment is ephemeral. In this hands-on lab, we will specifically explore syncing our host and guest directories using the rsync implementation by updating our Vagrantfile.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
