Quizity's blog

Working at Quizity is serious business

You may have wondered how a website like Quizity is built ? Of course you need a little imagination and technical skills, but not only. You also need a good methodology ! And that's what we're going to talk about today.

To get organized, we use so-called "agile" methodologies. One of the tools they give us is a big board to stick post-its on it. Every post-it is a task we have to perform for the website. As you can see on the picture, we're not running out of work with all these post-its ! And yet, there's hardly half of what we've planned for the coming months on this board.

So the board is both a kind of agenda and a backlog for all future evolutions. Horizontally, we sort the post-its by categories : tasks to perform on the server, bugs to fix, new functionnalities, communication and so on... Then we sort the post-its in columns by priority : what's currently being developped, next week's assignements, and the rest for later.

As you can see, you have no reasons to worry for the future, we have a lot of surprises coming next ! This week we improved a dozen points after the release of the new design. For example, as we promised two months ago, automatic links will now work in comments you leave on the site ! And comments will paginate very smoothly too, you can see for yourself at the bottom of Maddax's quiz for example.

We'll keep you updated on the next evolutions :)
