I would like to refresh and improve my knowledge of SharePoint, and also test the creation of Apps on SP 2013 using Access 2013.
I was first thinking about creating an SP environment in a VM, but I realize that the new versions have a lot of requirements, and it would probably be more efficient to find something ready for use.
SO my question is: where do I find such a place ? Specialised hosting companies ? I had a quick look at MS Azure, but it seems that setting up VM's for this has a prohibitive cost for a freelance like me, who just wants a practice place -and eventually a showcase place.
I already saw this question which is really interesting, but I thing version 2013 is much more complex to setup !
