I use Laravel because it's the most advances PHP framework out there, easy to maintain, easy to upgrade and most of all : easy to get a handle on, and to follow every new technology ! PhpStorm is our main software to code, as of simplicity and full range of tools for a modern application.

Google Analytics Analytics of course for a tailored analytics, Bulma as an innovative CSS framework, coupled with our Sass (Scss) pre-processor.

As of more basic stuff, we use HTML5, JavaScript (but with Vue.js too) and Webpack to handle the generation of all this.

To deploy, we set up Buddy to easily send the updates on our nginx / Ubuntu server, where it will connect to our GitHub Git private repository, pull and do all the operations needed with Deployer .

CloudFlare ensure the rapidity of distribution of our content, and Let's Encrypt the https certificate that is more than necessary when we'll want to sell some products with our Stripe api calls.

Asana is here to let us list all the functionalities, possibilities and ideas we want to implement.

I'm routinely frustrated by Asana because it's clearly a tool created by designers, imposed on developers.

  • No integration with code repositories.
    • No task numbers
    • You can't reference a ticket in a commit and expect any feedback in Asana
    • You certainly can't close a ticket with a commit.
    • There's no link between CI progress and a ticket.
  • No Markdown support (you can't even put links on text!)
  • Boards and task lists aren't linked.
  • It suppresses middle-click so you can't open more than one ticket at once.
  • It logs every last change to things like assignments, but then folds up the conversation to suppress past comments.

Here's what it does have:

  • Pretty backgrounds
  • Cute little creatures that appear at random

This is not a tool for engineering. Please don't force your nerds to use it.

Decision at StackShare about Jira, Asana, Basecamp, Trello, Kanban

Avatar of legosystem

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.

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. Asana
