and why?
I prefer to keep the code on a flash drive and make backups on both the flash drive and my computer because i program with different computers at different times, and like the portability of the flash drive.

We use Git. It’s great when you forget both your flash drive and our team’s computer.

Nowadays, there’s a billion different sites for cloud storage, and keeping code on a USB is just inefficient compared to putting it up on the cloud in my opinion.

Git with GitHub, easiest solution for versioning and tracking everything.

On my two man team, we both do plenty of programing, so we keep it on the flash drive which we can pass around. And we have it saved on each of our computers

Cloud storage + git

Cloud storage is great because when the main programmer is out everyone else can still work on the code. And you don’t lose the code unless someone deletes the page.

I have my code saved on the laptop. Then, at the end of practice, I upload it to a cloud. Finally, before the tournament, I upload it to a flash drive in case I can’t reach the internet easily.

All of the above. Including Git.

What about saving to your computer and use OneDrive to automatically back up to the cloud?:eyes:

We put the code on.

Basically, on our school computers, we each have an account, so if ur logged in then the code in saved on ur account and u can access it on any computer so i guess thats kinda like a usb but u can only access it at school. i dont really code at home. i dont see the point since i can only test it at school anyway
