I am curious as to how real developers keep track of large projects. For example, the project I have been working on has a total of 50+ pages or files (php, css, etc). I have tried to use ‘best practices’ such as naming files and variables to make sense, commenting files for future reference and such. I also made a list of file names, where they link to, include files they depend on, etc. I’m sure there has to be a more efficient method, but Google has not been my friend in this regard! While my methods have worked for me, I can’t imagine doing it this way for a project with 100 files or more…
I have considered mind mapping software and project management software, but those just don’t seem to fit. Anyway, was just wondering what you all do to keep track of large projects.
