Take a look at this, seems like some good pointers :

Also, install Xcode command line tools, that should give you most of what
you need (e.g. svn, git, and some other stuff required for basic dev)

As for FileVault, I use that with no issues (and you know, it's kind
required by our employers... in case you ever use your mac for work)....
but if you choose to do it, do it now, while you don't have much content on
the SSD. Firewall is always ON as well.
