What to prepare for Mendix development

Nice to meet you all. We are considering using Mendix to collaborate with 5-7 people. Therefore, we are checking two things. We are considering using "Mendix Cloud" or "Mendix For Private Cloud". (⑴In this case, is there anything (development environment, equipment, PC, etc.) to be prepared on the developer's side? (2) I am thinking of connecting a database to Mendix for an application I am creating. Is it necessary to build a database environment and take security measures? Thank you in advance for your response. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

(1) On developers side you need a decent laptop and install Studio Pro on it, that’s all.

(2) Mendix applications come equipped with a database by default. So for starters there is no need to connect another database to it. It is actually one of the perks of Mendix that you have way less database-stuff and authorization stuff to worry about. Lots of good management out-of-the-box.

If you want to go private, then first read this piece of interesting information: https://docs.mendix.com/developerportal/deploy/on-premises-design/
