Introduction0:44 with Jay McGavren
Today we're going to show you how to set up a Linux server running as a virtual machine on your development computer. This is a great way to set up a sandbox where you can try out deploying your applications. There's a lot of different virtualization software out there, but we're going to use VirtualBox because it's free, open-source, and easy to use. Likewise, there are lots of different Linux distributions we could install, but we've chosen Ubuntu because it's commonly used.
