Setting up a developer environment
Set up the developer environment in 3 simple steps:
- Install Virtual Box 5.*
- Download the appliance (size: 5GB; username: websc; password websc)
- Import the appliance to Virtual Box and run it
The appliance is based on Ubuntu and has all services needed by workshops installed. All code with git repos cloned is also in the appliance, you might need to do a git pull. You will need to reinstall PHPStorm since the demo license was valid for 30 days.
Remember to use a laptop with a processor capable of hardware virtualization and at least 4 GB of RAM (8 GB is highly recommended). Regular hard disk will do, but having an SSD is an advantage.
