added Warehouse client library installation instructions.
h1. Installing a Development Arvados Instance
Arvados is primarily intended as a system to be run on large server clusters. For developers, we have provided a process to build and deploy the Arvados system in "Docker containers":https://www.docker.io/ on a single machine.
# *Install the Arvados servers in Docker containers.* The full process of configuring and building a Docker instance of Arvados is documented in the "docker/README.md":https://github.com/curoverse/arvados/blob/master/docker/README.md file in the source distribution.
# *Install the client SDKs.* After following those instructions, install the "client libraries":http://doc.arvados.org/install/client.html on your workstation as well. Make sure to install all three: Perl, Python and Ruby.
# *Install the Warehouse client library for Perl.* Running Crunch jobs locally requires having the Warehouse SDK for Perl installed locally. Follow the instructions at http://factories.freelogy.org/ under "Client Library Installation."
Once you have installed the servers and started them with @arvdock start@, and installed the client libraries, you should be able to work through the "user tutorials":http://doc.arvados.org/user/ to upload data into Arvados and run simple Crunch jobs in debug mode.
