  • Hi,

    you could, but in terms of licensing I don't know if it's really cheaper. What you could do is to use appropriate configured VMs which fit your needs. For example, you could set up a VM in Azure and install SharePoint on it, but you will need to have a SP license and you have to pay for the VM. The costs really depend on several factors.

  • Hola amalmoodle!

    Maybe you can use some cloud freeware in your development. There are some services you can access and develop on a cloud environment without needing to buy any software, and some have free or low cost plans so I think it is worth checking. I searched a little and found this post with a list of free cloud resources for developers. You can also maybe try looking for open-source developer tools and see what you come up with.

    ¡buena suerte!, Adriana
