You can use codio.io, it's a cloud-based IDE with Its own Ubuntu instance
- Intro to codio: http://www.infoq.com/news/2014/07/codio
- How to setup larvel with codio: https://codio.com/s/docs/specifics/laravel/
If ever you don't succeed to install Laravel using vagrant & Homestead, you can still follow the tutorial. But in this case, you'll have to install Laravel in a different way, check the docs for it.
However, be sure to have all included in your local environment. Which means, obviously PHP/MYSQL/APACHE and etc...
Homestead is great when you succeed to install it because you are sure to work with the same environment as the teacher and it includes all you need. Then you are pretty sure to avoid issues.
