Setting up test and dev environments for SharePoint Online?

Not really easy to do. MS guidelines currently seem to recommend creating a local SharePoint environment that mimicks the structure you have online.

One option that is available for setting up a test environment is to become a MS partner for free (see https://partners.microsoft.com/partnerprogram/PartnerMembershipCenter.aspx ) and register for a free Office 365 subscription you could use as a test environment. Also check:

This basically says: build sandboxed solutions in a local SharePoint env and test them there, because SPOL won’t let you do that.
