Top five ways we can handle web application conflicts when working with multiple developers:

  1. Start using Git version control system with proper branch management and merging strategy.
  2. Unit tests to avoid breaking or failing an existing code or function.
  3. Manual code reviews, coding standards, and linting also help implement a standard coding style throughout the application.
  4. Follow best practices in coding especially decoupling components and avoiding dependencies. If you write unit tests, your code naturally gets these qualities.
  5. Remove dependencies on environments like (prod, stage, local dev env) to reduce conflicts. Implement docker containers to standardize environments and use .env file to store env variables
