installing all basic packages required for development on Ubuntu

It was always a pain figuring out how to install all the basic development packages required for simple stuff like compiling and installing something from source on Ubuntu. But now I realized after searching the web that there's a "build-essential" package (singular, not plural) which can be installed which will fetch and install all of these basic stuff like gcc, autoconfig etc.

sudo apt-get install build-essential
