Pivotal Tracker is a web-based task management system used by Xtreme Labs engineers as part of our agile development process. This blog gives an example of a common situation where Pivotal Tracker can help overcome project roadblocks.
Ever been on a project where the client is in the process of building their server API and you need to coordinate these dependencies with your development? Sure, you can work around it temporarily by using stubs and/or fixtures, but sooner or later, you will be waiting on doing the actual integration. We need a way to clearly communicate our requirements for the client’s API, and to show them what we need to resolve these dependencies. Furthermore, we want to be able to prioritize these tasks as development moves forward.
