Code Version Control

How important is code version Management ?

Version control systems allow you to compare files, identify differences, and merge the changes if needed prior to committing any code. Versioning is also a great way to keep track of application builds by being able to identify which version is currently in development, QA, and production. In a typical scenario where there are multiple developers working on the same project / functionality, it works as a central repository for team to keep their work updated along with detailed log time.

Tools for Code Version Control

There are various types of versioning software available, such as Subversion SVN and git.
Subversion SVN is a free, open-source version control system designed by Apache. It is reliable, easy to use, and can handle small and large scale applications.
Git is also a free open-source version control system that is more common for Mac users. Git is especially useful for handling multiple local branches. It allows you to have different code versions simultaneously that you can independently choose to share. This means that developers can work on different requirements separately without having to do a lot of work later to merge the versions.

How we manage Code Version Control ?

We at Splice Global have a strong project management and DevOps process for all the projects. We believe in automation to save effort, increase delivery time and minimize human errors. Our process to have an effective Code Version Control is as follows :

  • We prefer third party Cloud-Based Code Version Control
  • Effective use of Branching to keep the work separate for groups of developers
  • Standard code level and code merge level comments for future references
  • SSH key level push access control to avoid unauthorized access
  • Role-based access control to give relevant access to the team members
