    #Trello

    I use Jira because

    • It's used widely as the best SW dev tool
    • It's so easy to use
    • Flexible to configure
    • Great for tracking of tickets while leading meetings
    • Accessible from Everywhere

    In overall, especially for large projects, Confluence is must. On the other hands, for small-mid size projects, #Trello is also great due to visualisation power.

    Review ofJiraJira

    Most of my time in JIRA is spent

    • Waiting for pages to load
    • Clicking on links, because the information that I need is not available on the first pages I reach
    • Looking for the next link to click, because each page has a different layout and the bug title or the latest comment might be placed anywhere on the page

    Additionally, any time I search the documentation I get bug reports from years ago that appear unresolved or instructions for modifying the on-premesis installation (we have their cloud service).

    Compared to Bugzilla and Redmine, Jira requires a lot of manual configuration which can make project issues not compatible status-wise.

    So much relief as you can track each and every issues, bugs, dev project and maintenance and a time machine when it comes to do that less interesting timesheet or daily status. Its a rescuer.

    We use a combination of Scrum and Kanban for our tasks. We focus more on the integration with Bitbucket to keep track of tasks and have bi-directional accountability.

    We use JIRA because it's a single tool that can be customized to each of our business processes: product development, customer on-boarding, and internal operations
