Engineering Backlog

An engineering backlog is a prioritized list of engineering tasks or issues that need to be addressed in a software development project. It includes items such as bug fixes, feature enhancements, technical debt, and infrastructure improvements. Think of it like a to-do list for the engineering team. Just like how you prioritize tasks in your personal life, the engineering backlog helps the team focus on what needs to be done next. It ensures that issues are not forgotten and that the development process stays on track. So, it's like keeping your house organized by tackling one task at a time!
