Chapter 25. Establishing a Collaborative... > The Development Environment

The Development Environment

Collaborative development is typically done on what is called a development server. The development server holds the collaborative project until it is ready to be published to a live server for the intended audience to see and interact with.

Traditionally, the development server is built on the same hardware and software platform on which the final project will be launched, which provides a means of testing all aspects of the final project. This practice is encouraged because it not only gives the developers a chance to work on the same system they expect the audience to work on, but it also helps identify unforeseen problems with the chosen platform. Development servers also have been used to provide backup systems when the deployment server goes down.
