Version control of deliverables

We need to regularly synchronize many dozens of binary files (project executables and DLLs) between many developers at several different locations, so that every developer has an up to date environment to build and test at.

I’ve been developing my first iPhone app part-time and would like to start using a more rigorous form of version control than I’ve been using over the past four months, i.e. copying source code folders to another directory and time stamping them.

Why is Harvest being purchased at all?

What to check-in from an Eclipse workspace .metadata

I have been version-controlling the projects under my workspace but it never occurred to me that I should be checking in the workspace configuration itself. Until now. I know that I have absolutely no interest in the perpetually bloating .log file, so I am definitely not going to check it in, but… can I discard […]
