I am new to sharepoint and was wondering if someone can please point me in the right direction. (SP 2010)
I have to develop a solution that will include lists, content types and custom forms etc. The system will go live but there will be changes and i need to push the changes to my solution out to pre-prod then finally production servers.
What is the best way to manage this development. For example:
I have created content types using a VS template but if i change them the changes do not take effect on objects using that content type.
So i created the content types in code, then i can at least check if it exists then make any changes (eg description change for column type)
When i tried to publish lists, it removed the list i had previously (and all the data)
I have since started to look as the SP designer, which looks good, but how do i version my code?(SVN)
In SP designer i can save a template, which does everything i want , except i cannot update version in pre-production (templates are single instantiation only)
