After I introduced Scrum in my last article, today will be about Kanban. Like Scrum, Kanban is an agile software development methodology and I have to say that I apply the principles I present today to most of my personal side projects.
Kanban is Japanese and can be translated as “billboard”. Kanban was first introduced by Toyota in the automotive industry and is now mostly associated with just-in-time concepts. But I don’t want to bore you with historical details, I want to show you the usage in software development.
