Announcing agileXtreme - Simple, pragmatic project management for
After a limited beta we’re opening up agileXtreme to the rest of the
world. We would love for you guys to take a look and provide us with
agileXtreme is the simplest online project management system that
could possibly work. We don’t have dates, calendars, milestones or
gantt charts, just a simple UI that lets small agile teams collect
their stories, estimate their complexity and track the team’s
velocity from iteration to iteration.
While agileXtreme is not a pure implementation of all things eXtreme
Programming, we did take a very pragmatic approach to its development
and the result is a tool that we think will appeal to XP teams, SCRUM
teams, and in fact any team that’s just had enough of bloated project
management tools and methods.
In agileXtreme you simply create your stories, estimate their
complexity and then let the team members grab stories to work on, re-
estimating as necessary. At the end of an iteration, agileXtreme
measures the velocity of the team and provides feedback to help plan
the next iteration. As we gear up for our full release we’ll be
adding features for online team collaboration, more extensive
reporting (velocity by team member, velocity graphs, export data as
XML) and whatever else our userbase asks for.
We’d really value your feedback on where we’re at, and where we’re
going, so wander over to http://www.agilextreme.net and take a look.
