"Are you familiar with uploading your code to Google Drive?"

I left the building at that exact moment.

    In all seriousness, if you're working on something alone, you can kind of use Google Drive as a backup - just place a project's folder inside Google Drive's synced folder.

    @kamen
    In all seriousness, then why not just put it in a private repository?
  • 17
    @kamen What happens when you screw something in a synced folder? Revert commit? Oh wait... You can't :(

    @kamen in all seriousness. Thats a terrible idea. As mentioned above, use a private repository for your projects.

    I hope that will never happen to me. Good call leaving ; )

    @Jormungandr you can revert the commit if you use git into the google drive synced folder xD

    @Sempros I'm not saying it's better than proper VCS, I'm saying it's better than nothing.

    @flag0 Real devs use a physical drive to transfer their files to their colleagues.

    @kamen in all seriousness Google drive is no replacement for version control, no matter how many people you are working with

    Why don't you archive your project and append date and time in the name. 😁

    @kamen BitBucket hast free private repositories.

    @polaroidkidd Yes, I know, GitLab also does, but the point is that git may be confusing for someone who has just started learning to program. Google Drive is not the right tool for the job, but it's still a fact that it can keep your code backed up and available on multiple computers if you're working on it just by yourself.

    @kamen ah yeah, if you're just starting out I agree but I still highly recommend getting familiar with git. The basics are super simple and it won't take more than an hour to get the hang of it. Personally, I wished the git thing was done in the first week of my cs course.

    @kamen dude,are you seriously trying to convince us to use Drive ?😂
  • 0
    @kamen then, um, Mercurial maybe?

    "sure, I can try to set up automatic backup of repository's working copy to Google Drive; no guarantees it actually would work. Of course that would cost you extra"

    For solo stuff, I keep two local repos per project. One for the project root and then a "remote" that's located in my dropbox folder. I've been using this setup for years without issue. I don't recommend for multi user projects, but if your already paying for this cloud storage, it works fine. Not OneDrive though. That wasn't functional last I tried.
