Advice for writing and testing agents

I am a newcomer in Lotus Notes development. I have the Notes front end and Designer installed on my machine. I want to write some agents and test them. Do I need to install a server on my machine for it? Also please let me know some site from which I can download some agents and try learning from them.
You can write agents in a local Notes database and run them there. The Notes client also has support for background agents, which run in an environment more similar to the server (no NotesUI -- classes, for instance) but are harder to debug. I always test code locally as much as I can before installing it on a server. I also have the server software installed on my workstation, and I use that for testing as well.

The Domino Designer help has numerous code examples, and the LDD Sandbox and the various LDD forums are an excellent source of all kinds of sample code.
