Using Trello for IT project management

As Joel Spolsky wrote on his blog:

The folks over at UserVoice are using Trello quite extensively throughout their development process.

Founder Richard White describes it all in detail.


Trello - a real gem!

Well known an respectable blog owner, Joel Spolsky (joelonsoftware.com) has recently published info about their new product: Trello. Actually, he published this info exactly one year ago, but I've found it just today.

Credibility of Fog Creek Software company (which produces FogBugz), where Joel Spolsky is a co-founder is very high to me. To add more, they also run Stack Overflow and Stack Exchange. So in this light, after reading about something new like Trello, it almost immediately aroused my curiosity.

As Joel Spolsky wrote in his announcement post:
Around the time of Fog Creek Software's ten year anniversary, I started thinking that if we want to keep our employees excited and motivated for another ten years, we were going to need some new things to work on.

And to be honest, Trello is one of those things in Internet, which creates big waves and influences way the people work. As soon as one starts collaborating with at least one another person on the same board, the very idea of Trello shows up. It's a real, genuine gem, which is quite rare in Internet nowadays. Chances are its creators will really have something interesting to work on for at least ten years.

My advice? Sign on, and USE IT!!!
Trello team wants to have 100 million active users, and since their service is free and non-discriminatory, there's no excuse not to use it.
