Github clearly feeling the pressure from Gitlab who released this feature a few weeks back...and its still better.

@shaundunne maybe GitLab released it quicker. Such feature takes a lot of time to implement
@yuriihabrusiev @shaundunne GitLab is entirely open source, so it's easy to see how quickly they shipped it. It's anyone's guess when GitHub started work on theirs. I know which model I prefer.
To be honest, I'm using Trello for quite some time now, Github's version of it is nothing like that. It's still "primitive" in contrast to Trello

@feketegy but it is a start and I can see it succeeding somewhen.
@feketegy at Product Hunt we also are using Trello, but funny enough today we were discussing that we don't actually need it.
@andmitsch certainly, i'm hoping to include the Projects API into my own app next to Trello :)
@andmitsch "somewhen" may be the best non-word word I've ever read. Will be using it!
Love the screenshots made specifically for the Product Hunt team. As a PM, I am really looking forward to ditching JIRA as soon as I can, and this is a step towards my goal. Congrats on the launch!
@theoblochet Me as well. But until you get half the features available on Trello, it'll take time. Now imagine JIRA's level of complexity. But again, probably some add-ons will save the day.
Founder of Zube here. GitHub Projects is going to be very useful for small teams. Also, really excited to see how open source projects will use it. It could add some much needed visibility into their road maps and what they're currently working on. That said, GitHub Projects is not going to be a great solution for everyone, particularly larger teams. If you're doing serious project management with GitHub you'll greatly benefit from a more full featured tool like the one we make! Zube - https://zube.io
@jenniferdewalt Thanks for posting this - I'm going to take a look.
