      We originally decided to use Trello because GitHub Issues were getting way too crowded and overwhelming. Also, GitHub Issues are great for detailed bits of work, but they're not so great at high-level tasks or buckets of work. The milestones stuff in there just doesn’t cut it.

      We love Trello. It's great because it’s super flexible. Almost to a fault. The one thing I wish it had: velocity. Not sure why they don’t add that, but I would so use it. Right now we just add an estimate of hours at the top of the description field. I also wish they had a more robust Calendar and concept of time. Trying to get Trello to act like a product planning tool is almost impossible. And using other tools is a nightmare. So we’re kind of stuck using Trello as-is. But Trello as-is is > all the other PM tools we’ve tried (and we’ve tried a lot).

      The various projects that we'll have on the go at any point in time, within the R&D team, are internal projects that will prove long term benefits. We use Trello to track individual tasks that comprise those projects, and work with them in an Agile approach.

      원랜 Github issue로 이슈트래킹을 했었는데 첫 개발땐 워낙 바뀌는것도 많고 빨리해야될것도 많고 해서 트렐로로 유연하게 관리하니까 좋음. 앞으로 사용자가 생기고 소스코드 풀면 github issue로 관리할 생각

      Trello is the core of our workflow. All tasks to be done go on Trello, and whenever you have to work on something, you go on Trello to check out what you could work on. And it works perfectly for us.

      I use Trello for organizing projects. Typically I break a project up into sections, add and prioritize tasks for each section. For largest projects, I'll break it into multiple trello boards.
