    Hi

    I recently got a Macbook Air and have found when I am out and about I often feel the need for a dabble into some programming.

    So what are some recommended methods of being bale to work on an xcode project from home and away?

    Thanks.

    svn, just chose as repository something you can reach at home and in a far away place. Beats usb stick or ftp by far

    I do something similar except keeping sync'd copies of the repository on both my MobileMe virtual drive and locally on my MBA 11 as well. That way I can still use source code control when completely offline (no wifi).

    You could give a try to github.

    git is not supported by Xcode 3.x, svn is. Right now, svn would be the preferred choise.
    And yes, we are not supposed to talk in public about xcode4 yet.

    +1. Dropbox has to be about the easiest way I've found. When I was using iDisk to work on a project and with three machines (home iMac, work iMac and Macbook), I was ending up with copies all over the damn place, and I was never sure which one was the most current. With Dropbox, I just drag the project to my Desktop, work on it, and then drag it back to my Dropbox.

    Adding svn+dropbox like 87vert mentioned gives you the best of both worlds. Easy access from everywhere + real revision control.

    Personally, I find revision control a la SVN/CVS/git extremely valuable since I am often away from code for long periods and it helps with the "WTF was I thinking?" problem.
