sorry, got carried away by the repo-part. How I work thru a story? If it's not clearly defined, it doesn't make it thru estimating and planning. So I start defining which parts it touches (data layer, utils, buisness logic...) and then work my way up: write tests that define the behaviour, write code till tests are green, create pull request, next layer. If a pull request depends on one of a lower layer I mark it WIP with a reference to the version/pull request it's depending on.
How big is your team?
The whole team is roughly 8 devs. But on different technologies (web, iOS, Android, backend, 3D, core)
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
