In creating a SharePoint 2013 SP1 development environment, I am considering a laptop solution as follows, with the main question being where Visual Studio needs to be installed:
- laptop with 32gb ram
- hyper-v vm running windows server 2012 r2
- the windows 2012 vm would run SP2013 SP1, SQL Server 2014
- Visual Studio 2013 - is this installed on the vm or the host in order to develop SP projects?
the purpose is to develop either farm or sp apps, including web parts.
Also, does VS 2013 contain all of the libraries and templates needed for such development? if not, what else is required?
