I’m getting ready to start the backend section of the course, and I’m a little torn between using C9 to develop everything or diving into the deep end and setting up a local dev environment.
I’m currently running Windows 10, but I have VMWare set up with Elementary OS (would probably switch to Manjaro or something). I have limited Linux experience, but I figure setting everything up would help increase that knowledge and would apply more to how a project works in the real world.
Any thoughts on this? I’ve seen a few people comment that they have done something similar. What was your experience like, and is it worth it?
