You've been hearing a lot about agile software development, get started with the eBook: Agile Product Development from 321 Gang

At TargetProcess we develop by feature. It means that every user story and every bug have separate branches. Also it means we have quite many builds, since every branch should be tested separately. Visual Builds Board shows statuses of all builds. It is a simple .NET application that extracts required info from Jenkins and TargetProcess.

This is a dashboard screen. Green builds are passed, orange builds are running now, and red builds are failed.
