If you have never built your own application on a computer before then you are missing out on one of the best things about virtual life. The one thing that a computer is great at is making whatever it is in your imagination doable. And not only that, it also helps you achieve goals that are in a real space as well and not just virtual.
But you have to remember that when you build a new app it has to be able to take any pressure that your customers put on it. In other words there is a variety of ways that your customers are going to use your app. Ways that you never ever suspected. You must make sure that your app is going to be able to handle that problem.
And that is especially important when it comes to security. You have to remember that this new app is going to be installed on your customer’s computer. Before they install the program, you as the developer need to make sure that it will not be able to damage to their computers. Not only that, you must be sure that no one else can use a security hole that you left and enter their computer with it.
That happens all of the time. The developer who creates the program does not check well enough and now the bad guy has an entrance. If this happens to you then there are going to be less and less customers who are willing to trust your app. If you want to make sure that you do it right then place your app in a virtual machine and throw everything at it.
Put your app in a virtual machine and try your best to make it crash. You want to be able to see all of the bugs before it is released to the public. Of course you are not going to be able to duplicate every bug that you would see in the wild but you can do enough to make sure that your app is basically safe.
The main point is that you want to test your app to make sure that it is secure. Try your best to find out in a virtual machine on your desktop rather than on your customers desktop.
