Beanstalk: Version Control for a Solo Developer?

As a one-gal dev circus I am always looking for cool, new, and inexpensive (read: free) ways to create better apps more efficiently.

A workable version control and code repository app has eluded me for some time, and every day that passes without one is one day closer to my own personal apocalypse. At the Day Job we use SourceSafe (I know, I know!) but it’s a dinosaur and quite frankly, not very sexy.

CVS was rather alien for a Windows developer like me and Subversion looked like a contender until I tried to set it up all by my lonesome.

Now, there’s Beanstalk to the rescue! It’s essentially a hosted Subversion with an extremely user-friendly interface and more importantly, it’s free for up to 3 users, 1 repository and 100 MB of storage. That’s perfect for the solo developer who wants to be a good kid and version and back-up their code.

I just signed up and am excited to put on my Responsible Developer Hat. I will post more about my Beanstalk experience after I’ve had some time to play with it.
