Working on a project is difficult, working on a project with multiple people is difficult, working on a project with multiple people, in multiple locations and with multiple devices is difficult. What I’m saying is working on something is difficult, anyone that’s ever programmed can attest to this. People often use things like Github, Microsoft’s Azura cloud or Amazons web service to keep your work up to date, this means that if you (or a friend) made a change to your work everyone would have access to the newly created work without any difficulty.
Google is going to try become a part of this market, with the announcement of its latest service, Cloud Source Repositories. The service is currently in beta and hopes to become a go-to for group projects and people who enjoy coding. In its description Google has stated that it will have a private Git repository, which will not only integrate and work with a majority of the existing tools but will also feature a high level of encryption, making sure that your files are secure and for your eyes only. With access to the Google Cloud Platform, and later in the year a new API launcher and a new cloud debugger, the system looks to provide you with all the tools you take for granted while guaranteeing you access to Google’s knowledge and support for your projects.
Do you use a cloud repository for your work? If so would you be tempted to try out Google’s new service or are you happy with your current one?
