The rise of agile software development in recent years has created a need for automated task boards. Issue tracking and project management software currently facilitate agile processes such as Scrum. However, these full-fledged systems lack the versatility of a paper task board. They often limit user rights and offer overly complex workflows. This can result in suboptimal work processes or unnecessary frustrations in teams.
As a developer working in Scrum teams, I have seen many paper and digital task boards but all of them have too much limitations. Always I thought: “it shouldn’t be that difficult”. My colleagues stood behind me when I did took on the challenge to create, what I describe as, an analogue digital Scrum board named Scrummie.
This is a task board with the freedom of a paper version and is not limited with complex workflows. Of course, it is a digitial web service so people can use it everywhoere. For example when working from home or at locations within your organisation away from where the Scrum team is housed.
Scrummie is distributed under the GNU General Public License, version 3. You can download and use it for free.
