The Brackets Team… using Trello

In my optics (and obviously when wearing my coders goggles) Brackets is the most exciting news to come out of San Jose this year… not only is the team targeting to build an entirely new code IDE for web projects, but they have decided to do it in a new way… a way that may prove both to be more challenging as a traditional product development approach as well as more rewarding as members of the community starts joining the development effort by adding both core features as well as extensions (an extension API is on its way) even from the very beginning of its lifetime…

Anyways, what I wanted to share was that the Brackets team is using Trello as their SCRUM board.. being a happy Trello user myself, this is off course both interesting and exciting…

The Brackets Team obviously practices Scrum. They have decided to work iteratively and produce stable builds every 2.5 weeks (12 coding days to be exact). A rather unusual number, however it works for the Adobe Brackets team… Development started in January 2012 so it’s still in the very early stages of the project.

The project goes under the parole: Code Free ! So I suggest you do exactly that, join the project, contribute a feature or two, learn a lot and then take this approach and apply to your development efforts in your own circles, being commercial or not, the approach is clever and when executed correctly, can empower to teams and the extended teams like no other approach…
