Efficiency - Do you use Source Control and Backups?

Last updated by Tiago Araújo [SSW] on 12 Mar 2021 12:20 am (7 months ago) See History

As a responsible employee, there should be no excuse for ever losing data, especially if it belongs to a client. For this reason, it's important to make sure:

  • Your backups are working properly (backups always succeed, restores fail)
  • You are using source control for any code you develop

It doesn't matter where you are, you can still version control your source code and it's important to talk the client into this in order to avoid any possible disasters.

Figure: Have a backup
