    How is it recommended that Sitefinity be set up in a multi developer environment?  We will be writing user controls and importing them into the system - so need to know how complicated this is.  Are there any issues with each developer making changes locally (shared database) - does anything get cached unexpectedly?  ie. the issue with people potentially making changes to the same thing unexpectedly.

    We use Visual Studio 2008 + subversion for our source control.

    I gather from reading through the forums that you don't really have any site synchronisation tools at the moment - what do you plan to implement and for when in the future?  ie. the fact that we have a dev, staging and production environment and will need to push changes to production without losing any content changes that are there.

    Hi Jen,

    We will be writing user controls and importing them into the system - so need to know how complicated this is

    Importing user controls to the system is very easy. There is an importer through the backend of Sitefinity (upload control). The controls could be also manually inserted by adding a record to the <toolboxControls> section of the web.config.file.

    Are there any issues with each developer making changes locally (shared database) - does anything get cached unexpectedly?

    Generally the objects that are edited are locked and updated by the user who is working over them, so it is not possible to have any problems in this matter.
