As part of the Developer Program, you are able to request access to a personal developer sandbox running in the cloud that will be fully tooled to include BMC Helix Platform and a library of reusable components. In addition, you may request to gain access to a downloadable local developer sandbox. Developing in a personal sandbox gives you your own flexible development environment where you can get comfortable with building custom coded and codeless apps.
