Default Working with the book on two machines...

Hi Imar,

actually I did not yet start to work with your book - but I am through the first few pages, and I really like what I have read so far and I am really looking forward to learning by your book because my younger brother did so and he really loved the experience.

Whatsoever I have to work through the book on two different PCs and I was wondering how to manage that without constantly plugging and unplugging my usb stick ;)
So my actual question is - and I hope it is not too stupid: Does Visual Studio 2008 (full version) offer some sort of integrated solution for that purpose? Or is there some sort of online service that offers me to upload my result? I would be willing to pay a small monthly fee if that would at the same time enable me to publish my results and share and discuss progress with my brother.

Thanks in advance for any sort of advice or suggestion and please excuse the bad English - I really hope that writing in C# turns out better for me than writing in English....

Bruce,

Is your goal to be able to work with the same set of files on both machines? Are they networked? If so you should be able to map a network drive from one to the other so you can work with them as if they are local. That will save you from having to move a USB stick back and forth.

Hi Bruce,

Another option is to use an FTP server. This is discussed in the first chapter, when opening sites is discussed. On top of that, you need a hosting environment and configure your site there. This is discussed in chapter 18.

However, I think that while learning, copying files to a USB stick is probably a lot easier...

Cheers,

Imar

Hi Peter,

thank you for your answer.
But actually the machines are not in the same network and setting up a VPN seems a little bit inappropriate and intricate to me, somehow.
Is there no way / service to publish things online and by the way synchronized the progress on two (or more) machines.
I have heard that team explorer would do that, but it seems that you need your own Server for that. So that would be definitely too expensive. But I was wondering if maybe some site offered something like that as a service with a monthly fee - just like the services for MS exchange etc.
I am still very thankful for any sort of advice or suggestion.

- Bruce

Hi Imar,

thank you for the hint.
I'll check the chapters and then see if a FTP solution is the right thing for me. Either way thanks a lot for the advice and support!

Bruce,

Typically when you get into doing concurrent/synchronized development you are getting into the world or source code control. There are lots of source control systems that work over the internet, many free and open source (CVS, SVN, to name but a few). There are many sites that have publicly accessible source code repositories that you can join for free to create projects hosted by their systems. However, I have not used them so I can't offer much as a recommendation or details on how they work. But something like CodePlex.

However, if you are looking for a simple way to work together while learning, all this might be overkill.
