Looking back into history of ScrumDesk

It is October 2013 7:00 PM. There it is. The first commit into our git with the newest web application we started to develop. From scratch.

But it is not the first one. We even had two other working web applications which were unfortunately not designed as we envisioned for the best scrum project management tool for small and medium size agile teams. It was not just about the design. It was about a vision, goals, principles, technologies as well. It was a time to build something so simple as a board. It was a time to extend kanban boards by productive surroundings.

And here we are. ScrumDesk is available for free for the public since March 2014. A new version has been available nearly every week (except summer).   New modules that help you design better products and improve your teams. New integrations. Agile coaching integrated into the application. The complex world of simple agile principles and practices.

Based on your feedback you found ScrumDesk as a very valuable tool. You even wanted to pay as provided value is very high in your opinion. And you expect further development of ScrumDesk with features that will continue to help your teams do Scrum correctly.
