Presentation: Local Development with Version Control
Developing locally using a version control system can be a huge time-saver and nerve-sparer. If you’ve ever taken down a live website by accident, lost a file, or had a day’s worth of hard work overwritten by somebody else’s changes, source-controlled local development is for you. Using a single authoritative code repository in tandem with isolated local development environments can dramatically speed up team-oriented development, while keeping your code (and sanity) intact.
The Jake technical team recently gave a presentation on why we’re so fond of local development. If you’re not familiar with the advantages of developing locally, or would simply like a crash course in distributed version control (we use git), be sure to check out the presentation at the link below.
