Ssh workspaces - use cases



As a novice programmer I’m trying to conceptualise cloud9 ssh workspace scenarios & invite comments. I’ve just set one up on digitalocean… should I make a virtualenv & do everything inside that? Do I use the c9 webserver, or install nginx, or apache on DO through the ssh workspace?

What’s everyone else doing with there’s if I may respectfully enquire?

I have a feeling that this is going to be a game changing way of doing this but I don’t know enough to articulate why?
