What happens when you join a development team that went through many changes in personnel and team workflow over time? What will you do if there is no consistent and streamlined workflow for application development and deployment? As either a new manager or a member of such a development team, how would you go about modernizing the development process and bringing about a collaborative workflow? This presentation will cover (1) what the important components of the modern application development and deployment process are, (2) what steps one can take to introduce and implement the best practices such as code repositories, version control, up-to-date documentation, and intuitive and consistent naming, and (3) where some of the challenges may lie. An efficient and collaboration-friendly application development workflow will benefit a development team of any size – including a one-person team – by keeping the code base free from software rot and missing documentation.
