Do I need a Xojo Cloud server during development?

If you are just starting the development of your first web app you may be wondering if you need to get a Xojo Cloud server right away. In most cases, the answer is no. You can develop your application on your own computer and sign up for a Xojo Cloud server when you are getting close to deployment and are ready to test in as close to a real world situation as possible.

For the most part, you don’t have to think very much about this but there are areas where you should.
