DAML Newbie - test network

hi just encountered DAML but I’m very familiar with Corda and Fabric.
Scanned quickly documentation. I was not able to determine the following:

  1. Is it possible to setup a Test DLT locally
  2. Is there a public test network available i.e. other than for example deploying on Corda’s test network

Yes, the SDK ships with the Sandbox, which is a simple in-memory implementation fully compliant with the DAML model. You can spin it up by running daml sandbox after you’ve installed the SDK.

I’m not aware of anything specific to Corda, but there is an on-cloud offering of a DAML ledger at Project:DABL. If I’m not mistaken there’s a free tier, so you should be able to use it to experiment.

Also you can try out daml-on-fabric and daml-on-sawtooth both locally from their respective repositories and in your web browser.
