Three reasons why Trello will revolutionise the way you work
There are a number of different pieces of project management software that programmers and developers swear by. This is especially the case when it comes to teams of developers who have so many different balls in the air and so many different pieces of work to manage.
If you are part of a smaller team it can be easy enough to delegate tasks but if you are part of a larger network, then wires can get crossed and suddenly you can be left with three people getting in each other’s way. In order to get the max bonus out of working as part of a team, it is very important to find a way to communicate.
There are many solutions offered and many suggestions for programs that can help teams to manage their tasks. One of the main ones is slack and slack is a brilliant application which really can help you and your team to communicate and to better manage your tasks. However it is really not designed to be used by programmers and developers specifically. It is supposed to be a very general tool that can used by all manner of people and teams to communicate and to set tasks and share files.
This is useful, of course, however it is unlikely to solve many of the issues that developers have and will not help you to manage your time that much more efficiently. A far better solution is a program called Trello, which has changed the way many developer teams run. It is the perfect piece of project management software and runs on every platform from linux to mac to windows. Here are three reasons to start using it right now:
You can use Trello for free, you register without any cost and then just invite people and start using it. Trello displays different boards with tasks written on them that can be organised by different categories including how urgent the task is. You can subscribe to boards and then you will get notifications whenever something is added to that board. It is a great system and the fact you can pick up an account without putting money down, without having to enter cards details and with no need to worry about subscriptions is fantastic.
Many of these project management software programs are useful but look ugly as sin. They were designed by developers for developers and thus can be very confusing and have a stupidly high learning curve. Trello on the other hand is made to look simple and to be easy and quick to understand. You should be able just to pop it open and get started without having to learn lots of new things.
Depending on your task you can change what the boards look like and personalise them with pictures and themes that fit the work you are doing. This keeps everyone onside and ensures that everyone understands what you are all working towards.
