Setting up a test/dev environment for self learning

Hello experts,

I'm new to commcare, I started learning for self interest. I was trying to set-up a docker environment to test a sample application.

I am getting confused with lot of options in the documents.

Do you suggest a simple to use installation /setup doc link for setting up my test system in my local server in linode.

Thank you so much

Hi Patrick,

This page walks through the details of configuring the backend.

If you are interested in testing out the app, though, I'd recommend signing up for a trial account (or a community account) on the hosted SaaS service first. CommCare is a wide, complex multi-service system that's designed for horizontal scale so there's a lot to learn on both the hosting and implementation side, and it might be overwhelming to try and learn both at once.
