If you don't have an Ubuntu 14.04 or 16.04 environment available, you can use Docker to develop. First, install Docker as you normally would. Then,

docker pull ubuntu:16.04
docker run --privileged --interactive --tty --name impala-dev ubuntu:16.04 bash

Now, within the container:

apt-get update
apt-get install sudo
adduser --disabled-password --gecos '' impdev
echo 'impdev ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL' >> /etc/sudoers
su - impdev

Then, as impdev in the container:

sudo apt-get --yes install git
git clone ~/Impala
source ~/Impala/bin/

When that's done, start developing! When you're ready to pause, in a new terminal in the host:

docker commit impala-dev && docker stop impala-dev

When you're ready to get back to work:

docker start --interactive impala-dev

If instead of committing your work and stopping the container, you just want to detach from it, use ctrl-p ctrl-q. You can re-attach using the start command.
