Discussion on: How do you keep track of what you’re working on so you remember where to start next time?

When I'm in the middle of something, but have to leave for the day, I will type a bunch of jibberish on the line I was working on (and don't check it in). Then, when I come back the next day, my IDE immediately shows me a highly offensive big red compile error. Fixing the compile error pulls me right back to where I left off.

For longer-term todos, Ilike to use user-friendly task tracking apps that I can access from anywhere (PC and phone). I've used Trello and Asana in the past, but my current favorite is Favro.
