Working as a team?

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering how exactly programmers work as a team. I mean, how do they organize who is going to do what, etc? How does it all work? I was just asking because I''m thinking about getting another programmer to help work with me on a project, but I don''t know how to work together with another programmer. Also, if, for example, I found another programmer to help on my project, would I send him all of my code so he could help, or what? I would feel a bit uncomfortable sending my game code to someone I really don''t know. Any information on this subject is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

- Write a great design document first!
- Divide your work after a good long chat, so everybody is happy!
- Maybe first write a few shareable header files!
- You can send him header&object file, but trust is needed (from both sides...!)

Having a good bug-tracking program and source-control program is also very helpful. I suggest CVS (WinCVS for you GUI people) for source-control and Bugzilla for bug-tracking. Both are free!
