Do you use meaningful PBI titles? Luke Cook | SSW Rules
SSW TV | Videos for developers, by developers

Do you use meaningful PBI titles? Luke Cook | SSW Rules Product Backlog Items (PBIs) are the cornerstone of a well-oiled project. They track features, bugs, tasks, and much more. When a developer or Product Owner is looking through the backlog, it's important that - at a glance - they can read the titles of PBIs and have a decent understanding of them. So what separates a good PBI title from a bad one? 0:00 | Introduction 0:41 | PBI Users 1:25 | Demo PBI Titles 2:50 | The pain of poorly titled PBI's 3:25 | Demo with good PBI titling 3:39 | Tip #1 Use Gitmojis to create visual context 4:02 | Tip #2 Use prefixes to zoom out and establish context 4:40 | Why use these Tips? Without a meaningful title, you need to drill down into the details. If your backlog is substantial, it quickly becomes time-consuming and tedious to drill into each and every item to see what it's about. Even worse - next time you visit the backlog, chances are you won't remember the details and will have to re-read every PBI again! Emojis - love them or hate them - have become a staple in the development world. As the old saying goes; a picture is worth a thousand words. You can use emojis (responsibly!) to categorize PBIs, as well as bring attention to important items in a way that is easily interpreted by other people. Regardless of whether or not you choose to adopt the emoji language, you should always be mindful of the title's text. Always ask yourself: can a developer (or Product Owner) interpret the task and its importance without needing to dive into the details?

Dungowen Estate Wedding | Connor & Majella

Connor & Majella’s Wedding Story is filled with Fate. Courage. Unity. We were incredibly moved after hearing their speeches about the love, trust and support for each other. The amount of faith they give each other and to their friends and family around them is so inspiring! We were so honoured and privileged to not only witness but capture the marriage of Connor & Majella; and give them a story they can cherish and re-live forever ❤️ - Words from Majella, the Bride herself: "Jonty & Sherman were so wonderful. They listened to everything we wanted and really created something so special. We are SO happy to have got both the Fable Film & the FOMO edit. Would highly recommend both! For us, the 2 edits captured the 2 different vibes of the day and we love each one on its own & also together as a joint work of art. One thing that made all the difference was that they added really personalised shots that had a deep, unique meaning to us. That was something that meant a lot bc it meant they understood us as a couple. We couldn't have been happier working with them and are so grateful to have chosen Fable Wedding Films to capture the best day of our lives. Thank you Jonty & Sherman for all your hard work & delivering something that we will cherish forever." - Vendors: Videographers: Photographer: Hair & Make-up: Cakes/Bakery: Wedding Dress: Locations: Venue: Dungowen Estate - - Contact Fable Wedding Films ➳ More Fable Films ➳ Instagram ➳
