Switching to Trello
One of the things I'm noticing about running my Micro ISV is that I have to constantly change my mind :)
AgileZen is great, but one of the downsides was that a suggestion would get added to the board, but people could never see how it was progressing or where it sat in the queue. There was also no voting, so I couldn't gauge how many people thought a suggestion was good.
Today I switched to Trello, which is very similar to AgileZen but also allows public visibility. I'm hoping this will create much more transparency in how Octopus develops:
If you create an account on Trello (or use your Google account) you can:
- Vote for suggestions/features you like
- Add comments to items
- See how a suggestion progresses
Trello doesn't yet allow you to create new suggestions, so they should still be posted to the Octopus discussion board. I'll then add the suggestion to Trello so you can see how it progresses.
Welcome, my name is Paul Stovell. I live in Brisbane and work on Octopus Deploy, an automated deployment tool for .NET applications.
Prior to founding Octopus Deploy, I worked for an investment bank in London building WPF applications, and before that I worked for Readify, an Australian .NET consulting firm. I also worked on a number of open source projects and was an active user group presenter. I was a Microsoft MVP for WPF from 2006 to 2013.
