I’ve started to use the kanban board on GitHub and it’s pretty useful!
So far I’ve laid out the tasks I need to complete to get the game logic into a better state for my cutesy version of the royal game of UR.
As I come up with new issues with the game that need to be tackled, I put them on the ToDo list on the left.
As I start a task I drag it to the midddle.
When it’s done, it goes to done. Seems simple, right? Well the visual list of tasks helps to motivate me to complete them, and it’s a format I’m familiar with working on at work. Usually an agile swim lane is used in web development circles but that’s pretty similar, with a column for QA added and maybe some others depending on your needs.
I think I’ll keep using this. It’s worth noting that this feature already existed as a part of GitLab. I run my own instances, but I haven’t used that feature up until now.
