    Default Multiple people working on the same project[SOLVED]

    I have knowledge of java on a beginner level, and recently my friend started learning. He has gotten a bit and we are thinking about trying to make a program together, but the problem is I'm not sure what the easiest way to do it. Like is there some kind of program that allows us to work on the same project in real-time, or do we set up some rules on how we are supposed to make different classes and then one of us gets to put them all together? I have no experience at all when it comes to multiple people, so i appreciate any help. Thank you for your time!

    Open a project on one of the free project hosting sites, Google Code, BitBucket, GitHub, etc. You'll have to learn how to use the underlying source code version control system, but that's not a big deal.

    One of you should agree to oversee management of the project (maybe you could take turns), and the other should agree to be managed. Then, you and your partner should outline the design together (document your decisions) and then decide who will do which parts of the code. Document everything you both decide - not like it's needed for contractual purposes, but so that each of you knows what you're responsible for. The manager should determine the project's dependencies on the various parts, and develop a schedule that shows the flow of code development, build, and test.

    There's much more on software project management that could fill a couple semester's worth of college coursework, but you'll learn it or invent it along the away.

    Good luck!
