Have you ever wanted to develop your web application locally. Using VirtualBox you can develop with a near clone of your production environment. Giving you a personal sandbox where you can go crazy before you commit to your teams development server. More here

Go to Debian’s network install iso page to download the stable iso file we will use to install from. Save the file someplace convenient where we can find it later. The Linux distro doesn’t matter, if you can you should use the same as is on your production, staging and testing environments.

    The problem with using software like virtualbox is that it adds a layer of latency to the machine – and development is a task that really emphasises speed. If you have a pause because there is too much CPU usage etc. (which over happens in virtual machines), then it becomes very frustrating. Over time, most developer abandon software like virtualbox for this very reason.
