Do you want to do development on multiple sites with different setups concurrently, but do not have to update core in each install every time a new version is released? Are you developing for a single site environment, but don not want to spin up a new development server for every site so you do not have to worry about multisite quirks?
If you answered yes to either of these questions, a multi-tenant WordPress install is just what you need!
Come learn how I adapted Cliff Seal’s talk from WPCampus 2016 into a simple VVV site that allows you to develop for as many sites as you want while still maintaining the flexibility of having a separate directory structure and separate databases (not just tables) and still only have to update plugins/themes/core once for all of your sites.

What is WPCampus?
