Chapter 31. Managing Team Development Pr... > Servers and the Development Process

Servers and the Development Process

Traditionally, team-based development is done in a two-phase process. The site is first built and approved on a production server in which the entire team has access. Once completed or ready for viewing by the entire world, the content from the production server is published to a launch server. Production and launch servers are called many different things in the industry. What is important is this two-tiered approach.

Whereas everyone in the team has access to the development server, traditionally only a few have access to the launch server. This helps prevent all sorts of potential problems. The benefits of this two-tiered approach are obvious: It prevents the audience from viewing content not yet ready for its consumption, and it provides an experimental platform for the development team to preview its ideas and concepts before letting the world see them.
