work in group on an asp.net v2 website

P: n/a
Dear All

my second question here ->

We are going to rebuild an existing website from classic asp to ASP.net v2.
We are fully aware we better build this website again, so we made a team of
9 persons who are going to build this website again.

Now what is the best way to work in group in ASP.NET , all users have
Microsoft Visual Web Developper Express installed and the site
is hosted (so not our own webserver).

Please help us out because we are all rather new in asp.net version 2.

Thanks in advance...

I would start by setting up a staging server that you can all integrate to /
test with ... (you can then push from that machine to a hosted environment).
All development should be done/tested with local copies of a then pushed to
the integration machine once the functionality is working (depending what
source control you use, you may be able to automate this step on check ins
or just make it daily)

Hello Nick,

I strongly suggest using some kind of source control (try Subversion,
it is pretty easy to use)...

Without Source Control it would be very hard for the 9 people to not
step on each other toes.

Source control is a must. And some sort of a development server to test
against before uploading.

And definitely a bug tracking system. With a team of 9 developers, I'm
guessing that its a big site. Therefore you need something to track
issues that crop up and have a method to track and fix them.

Subversion works _really_ nicely with FogBugz as a bug tracking system.
It's pretty cheap as well, and SVN is free software so the two make a
really powerful, low-cost combo.

But we don't have our own servers, we are just a group of vollenteers
working for a non-profit company.
So there is no money to buy our own server and the 9 people are all on
different locations.
The site is pretty big.

If every user always upload the changed file on a testing directory at the
host, we can solve that problem but I don't think this is workable.
I see a lot of disadvantages on this model

So no solution yet...

Nick, What happens if two people work on the same file and upload one
after the other? It means the first person's work is gone!

Even for a non-profit organisation, there needs to be some way to handle
merging of code with some sort of source code management system.

If one of you has a static IP, available for 5 a year from your
broadband company, you can set up a source control server on a home
computer. You could even use a service like www.no-ip.org and save
yourself an annual fiver. There really isn't much need for a high-end
server, but you WILL regret not having source control when the worst
happens.

I've worked both with and without, and I would not ever give up my
svn/fogbugz combo because it means I can see what's changed, why, and
roll back any problems that arise. It means that all developers are
working on fresh code, and once a bug is fixed, it stays fixed -
there's never the problem where an old version of a file creeps back in
and breaks something. You should at least look at subversion/tortoise
SVN - the tools and the server are free, all you need is a machine to
host the server on.
