So here's what I did:
Deployed Bitnami on AWS using one of the Bitnami AMI's - that works beautifully. For my local development instance (we are 2 developers on my team) - I git commit'ed /opt/bitnami/apps/magento/htdocs folder and cloned it on my local machine.
On my local now everything works fine, I'm using bin/magento for the cli commands instead of magento-cli, though I just noticed the vendor/ folder is empty. Why would that be the case, and where are the vendor/ files actually located?
Also, I'm on the lookout for detailed learning resources on everything Magento 2.2 - Started with this book - Magento 2 Developers Guide, if you guys have more detailed resources I'd love to learn from them too.
