Abstract This case study investigates the concerns that should be addressed when scaling source code from a single-developer prototype to a production code base with multiple active developers. The primary purpose of this study is to create a roadmap for the process of completely rewriting a prototype application, including selecting a framework, configuring a deployment solution, and dividing the development process between team members. In addition, this case study addresses the supporting applications required for a production environment, such as the implementation of source control, build automation, and unit testing. A web application that was developed by multiple master’s students across five years with no professional oversight was used for this study. This study describes the process that the organization used to create a productive development environment while rewriting the prototype application.
