What Is Work In Progress (WIP)?


Work In Progress is a term used to describe unfinished work. This can be code, documentation, testing, etc.

Use cases and Examples

You will find the term used as a label usually in its short-form WIP in places where other developers can see the work of their colleagues.

One such popular place is in GIT commit messages. The message lets others know the code or document is still being worked on and might not work or should not be touched.

WIP is also used in comments within a codebase.
