Auditioning Github Projects

With the release of kanban-style project boards, we decided to move our open design process over to GitHub and give it a try.

Github recently released a set of new project-management features, including improved code-reviews and kanban-style “project” boards for prioritizing issues, and visualizing progress.

We’ve been using Pivotal Tracker for a long time now, and it works well for us, but we decided to try out Github Projects for our OddSite Open Design process.

My first impressions are mixed. There’s a lot to like about these new features, and the ability to organize issues – but the flow doesn’t feel well-integrated yet. We’ll write about the experience in more detail once we’ve had more time to live with it.
