here is the situation.
I started at a new company and there are very little or no standards. not in code, not in procedure, no anywhere. I have always come into places and adopted their way of doing things. this is a first time I have had to be the one to come up with procedure from scratch. so I figured I would ask what procedures, rules... have you found worked and didn't work.
the reason I ask is because we had a disaster the other day. a jr. developer posted code to the live site and we were unable to trace the problem for most of the day. another issue we had was I found a file on the live web server was not the same as the version in vss.
we are running iis/ asp, asp.net. we have a working vss database and such. we have a dev server we test on and a live server. we get about 3-9 million hits a month so it is verrrrryyyyy important we don't screw up like this anymore.
any help or ideas would be great,
