New development tool course suggestions

I think it would be awesome if you guys would do courses for tools like vagrant and docker. They're becoming ever more popular and would probably make other courses (like ruby and python) much easier to follow since they aren't always the easiest languages to work on with Windows.

Would second that... started my first proper web dev job (thanks Treehouse!) on Tuesday - was immediately pitched in to sussing out Vagrant, setting up a virtual machine with Virtual Box etc etc. Up until that point I'd used a Mac about once, had no idea what Bash scripting was and am still struggling frankly. Am loving the console basics course, it's helped no end in terms of getting me oriented but anything about vagrant, virtual box, bash scripts, ubuntu etc etc would be very very helpful.

Ya, they're great tools to streamline development because you can test on what your deployment set up will be like with no real cost of setting it up. It also gives you clean starting point every time so one projects dependencies won't mess with anothers.
