I am a .Net coder new to SP.
I've set up a new SP2010 in our test environment but wonder what the best practice is for the cycle I am familiar with "dev->test->live" with SP? e.g. How can I make test changes to a site (add new lists, forms etc) and then "promote" them up to test and then live...without destroying any of the data in the live environment?
A predecessor set up SP2007 but with only the Live site and worked directly on that...is that the way to go? Sounds risky!
There is no serious coding here, just standard SP2010 features such as new sites, lists, workflows etc.
