Never use a shared database server for development work.

Like many conveniences in software development, a shared database is a tar pit waiting to fossilize a project. Developers overwrite each other’s changes. The changes I make on the server break the code on your development machine. Remote development is slow and difficult. Avoid using a shared database at all costs, as they ultimately waste time and help produce bugs.
