My department head is insistent on having a Development and Production Server for our SharePoint sites. After speaking with some other professionals and working with the technology for several months, I am beginning to question the necessity of having this.
It seems that SharePoint is a fairly stable platform, and solutions that we are developing could be hidden from users while we work on them.
I am experiencing incredible difficulty while building workflows and Info Path form Libraries and then trying to migrate them to a different web\site application.
Should you have a development server for your SharePoint, or is this just causing more work for your developers?
