Team-Based Development of WSS and SPS Applications - My 2 cents

On MSDN there is an article about how to deal with SharePoint development environments, Team-Based Development of WSS and SPS Applications.

Some more suggestions for doing team based development:
  • Create a Virtual PC template with SharePoint, VS.Net and everything you need installed

  • Make copies of this Virtual PC template and rename the Windows 2003 Server hosted in your Virtual PC for every individual developer

  • Setup the Virtual PC to use a shared network connection and deploy your Visual SourceSafe database within your LAN

  • Use Visual Sourcesafe for everything you can imagine : webparts, site definitions, web services, setup projects, etc...

  • Use scripts and setup files to keep your development, test and production environment in sync
