The question is in the title - but here is the situation:
I have the opportunity to develop some functionality using sharepoint as part of the solution - I would need to do a lot of the development at home and do not have business server or sharepoint server installed (I basically have a desktop machine and a laptop running on a home network)
I already use Visual Studio to develop software (various tools including devexpress) - what would I need to be able to develop and test sharepoint apps. I also use Access for smaller apps.
I hope there is enough info here - all advice welcome.

Hello,

If you plan to use SharePoint 2010, you need a 64 bit OS and at least 4GB bit of memory. Here are the details of what you need and how to set it up:

Are there any other options - what about hosting on line for instance??

Well, that depends on what you want to develop. But if you talk Visual Studio, then you'll at some point need access to the server at the OS level to run scipts, manipulate files that sit in the SharePoint hive, package solutions, etc., and I don't know if that kind of access is being granted by hosting providers.

As far as I know, you need a server install on the same box that runs Visual Studio in order to access all the files you need.

Hi teylyn - perhaps my misunderstanding of the grading system - the answer did not really clear up my query - but I obviously need to do a bit more research and a bit more thinking about how I want to proceed - I didn't want to just leave the question open - perhaps I should get the "B" grade myself.

modus_operandi - Yes - Please change grade to "A" - by your guideline teylyn did not deserve a "B" - sorry teylyn.
