Hello.

I am getting up with some of my friends and we want to code together, my question is, how do we actually share code?

How do i get to him what i wrote? and what he wrote to me? i never worked on a project with other person so i am wondering.

I am guessing when i change a file like Light.h i should it to him the file, he would have to replace his copy manually, but is there anything that does that automatically integrated intro ide, and how do you/companies do it?

Our choice of IDE is VS2013 express or Code::Blocks.

Use something like github, it will make you're life much easier. Although i cannot give you much advice since i only used it for my personal project, never coded in a team.

If the project is small, even rsync would suffice. If you wish, you could use Dropbox to handle your rsync and servers.

 

I personally use Subversion.

If you have a small team, I recommend using assembla.com.
It has a good set of tools, and for free, it can help you acquire a svn repo, ticket system, etc for a project and a team of (I think) up to 10 people.

assembla.com should that be interesting for you.

I always found subversion to be really easy to use. Check out TortoiseSVN.

 

You can also use 'Google code' found at code.google.com (apologies if links aren't allowed mods) for a free repository. There're a number of tutorials out there for using google code with subversion but if you need a further hand, drop me a PM :)
