🎩🎩🎩 𝐓𝐞𝐬𝐭-𝐝𝐫𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐧 𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐝𝐰𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐝𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐥𝐨𝐩𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 – You need a tool to control tasks and their requirements for better collaboration. 𝗞𝗮𝗻𝗯𝗮𝗻 𝗯𝗼𝗮𝗿𝗱𝘀 are that tool.

As a hardware development freelancer, I’ve discovered the immense value of using Kanban boards like Trello to streamline development. One of the biggest benefits is that the 𝗞𝗮𝗻𝗯𝗮𝗻 𝗯𝗼𝗮𝗿𝗱 can easily be shared with clients.

1️⃣ Real-time collaboration: 𝗞𝗮𝗻𝗯𝗮𝗻 𝗯𝗼𝗮𝗿𝗱𝘀 enable all team members, including clients, to work together in real time. 👉 Sharing progress, assigning tasks, and keeping everyone on the same page has never been easier.

2️⃣ Transparent process: Providing clients with access to your project board not only builds trust but also strengthens the relationship by involving them in the development process.

3️⃣ Customer involvement: With 𝗞𝗮𝗻𝗯𝗮𝗻 𝗯𝗼𝗮𝗿𝗱𝘀, clients can actively participate in the development process by adding tasks, setting priorities, and even moving items between lists. This empowers them to have a say in the project and ensures that their needs are accurately met.

What is the test-driven element in the 𝗞𝗮𝗻𝗯𝗮𝗻 𝗯𝗼𝗮𝗿𝗱?
👉 each 𝗞𝗮𝗻𝗯𝗮𝗻 𝗯𝗼𝗮𝗿𝗱 item/ticker contains the Unit test part, which lists all points to be met

📦The task is to draw the new PCB shape
🧪 Unit tests can be – 4 mounting holes, 160×100 mm size, link to the enclosure drawing, link to the #hardwaretemplates item, connector clearance requirements etc.

The 𝗞𝗮𝗻𝗯𝗮𝗻 𝗯𝗼𝗮𝗿𝗱 item/ticker can be moved to the Done column no sooner after all Unit tests are passed.

Is there any automation? No, those Unit tests are not automated. Do you think those Unit tests are helpful? 💯% because everyone tends to forget things, mess things up or misunderstand.
