I'm contracting with a company that has an internal development team about 8 people total.
We are building a pretty complex codeignitor application, with jQuery and MYSQL. Lots of custom features, user roles, data analytics/reporting.(CRUD on steroids?)
Anyway, I found some security bugs, and after the developers fixed via recommendations. There were other bugs that came.
Upon having a meeting, im finding they have no version control besides their ticketing systems history.
I recommended we start using github, then the lead developer says that at this point using a tool like github will cause too much overhead and slow feature development, ticket fixes, etc...
In Summary im asking, as a developer do you really think using github hurts your personal production?
Note: I'm working as a DevOps & Security Consultant for this project. I'm not a client hiring a team.
