Show Notes

4:06 - Wes:

  • Features are logged into software (Github, Jira, etc.)
  • I use a Kanban board - I bubble them up and down in the order in which I want to release them
  • I don’t plan for Q1, Q1, etc…
  • Tear off an issue, tackle it, test and deploy.

10:39 - Scott:

  • All issues/features get a priority tag (e.g. p1 → p4) regardless of the system
  • Bugs go in Github
  • Features and platform improvements go in Notion
  • Table of priorities (with git branch, lead dev, release number, emoji icon, what it contains, etc.)
