    #Kanban

    There are lots of project management tools available nowadays. The choice ended up between Trello and Basecamp. Asana , JIRA and monday.com got a fair review but they didn't make it to the final list for several reasons (either way to complex or some UX issues or just too many options - good in some cases but not a good fit in this case).

    Between Basecamp and Trello the battle was between ease of use and price. Basecamp packs a great set of features and if you are ready to move to an all in one solution: chat, file storage, and a PM tool, then @basecanp is by far the right choice. But since all the features are within one package that cannot be customized, moving to Basecamp but only using a part of the tool feels.. well.. not right. On the other hand Trello has the #kanban format that is just too easy to use and the price point for small and midsize team that no one can beat.

    At the end, all solutions have a good fit in some cases. A better fit. But I think Trello can do the job in any case - it can fit with any scenario.

    I use Trello, the macOS app for my personal projects and Google Chrome for work. At work, I have 7-8 active boards for various projects.

    At first, I wasn't sure about Trello. The last company I worked at used Asana and I was really used to that. Before then I was using Jira. Now I ❤️Trello. It is amazing. Power-Ups™️ are so awesome!

    For personal projects, I have used it for planning a move across town. I'm also using it for my Wedding. I got my fiancè almost loving it too.

    Review ofDiscordDiscord

    Discord combines the text and image sharing of Skype and Teamspeak 3's high speed voice connection to create this reliable software platform. With the implementation of choosing whether you wish to chat with friends in a 1-on-1 conversation, to joining a community channel and meet up with new people.

    Discord provides the opportunity of letting the user join a channel with ease using nothing but a link they can paste into their browser. Discord also gives their members a wider experience being cross-platform, including Windows, Mac, Linux as well as IOS and Android mobile devices.

    Discord, on top of all the above, allows the user to post images in both channels and 1-on-1 messaging, aswell as play .gif and .mp4 files.

    Implemented also is the custom profile and friend system, allowing the user to add or remove friends, giving the user a vaster experience customizing their own way they wish.

    Discord is an overall very well produced platform allowing a diverse experience in communication and multimedia.

    Review ofAsanaAsana

    I have been using asana for a couple years and I have nothing but good things to say... except that it doesn't have a unified inbox and task list across you Organization/Workspaces :(

    Amazingly easy task/project management Meetings are great, Type your meeting agenda, notes & next actions directly into asana while the meetig is taking place. Integrates with Dropbox and Google Drive.

    This is the easiest project management tool I have ever used and it is very easy to get other people to use it too. I haven't has as much success implementing a habit within an organization as with asana. The biggest problem with Project management systems is that organization members don't use them enough, not with asana. Mobile apps, speedy web app, and integrations galore make it easy for people to stay up to date.

    Durch die einfache und plattformübergreifende Nutzung sowie die Möglichkeit schnell rollenbasierte Kanäle zu erstellen, bietet sich Discord hervorragend für die Kommunikation im Team sowie auch mit den Spielern an. Wir nutzen Discord statt Slack, da wir unseren Fokus im Gaming Bereich haben und Discord hier stark vertreten ist.

    Discord is home to many game development communities, including AGDG (Amateur Game Development General), RGD (Reddit Game Development), and Game Dev League. When I'm working with WebGL, they are always very knowledgeable and helpful in answering my questions about physics, vectors and data structures.

    We first used slack and switched to Discord later to stay near at where the community is at, while still be able to have private conversations and stay in contact. Discord offered everything we needed and used from Slack previously, plus the community-part, so it was an easy decision.

    Discord is used for all the discussions with our community, and discussions between our entire staff (including Community Managers, Chat Moderators and BATs). We also use a Discord bot we developed to deploy new code to the server.

    We use Discord for our community as well as generic staff communications. It works as a main selling point for ShadowICT as well as a central place for monitoring alerts and announcements to go.

    We keep ourselves out of email as often as possible, thanks to Asana. It keeps in the know, helps us manage sprints and hackathons, and helps us be transparent and productive.

    I used Asana to manage the tasks, define scope of the project more over to create a learning path that will effect my project.
