I started working at Internet Solutions 10 years ago as a support technician, and since then have done software development, network management, and various other things to keep me out of mischief. Currently, I am a team manager running a small, but diverse team of software developers at Internet Solutions. We rely on scrum to understand to Get Things Done, and to maintain our sanity.

I have been in the software development industry for over 10 years, I have worked in various languages but spent most of my career working with Java. I worked as a system analyst for a few years and then moved into a development manager position to try and facilitate change around the way development was approached. I have been using scrum for software development for over 5 years. In terms of agile certification and I have a CSM and Scrum master I certificate.
JIRA as a tool for scrum
I find a popular question with scrum is should we use a tool or not?
Most of my experience with scrum involves doing things manually, but this has presented some problems of its own and therefore the search for a tool to solve these problems. I believe selecting the wrong tool is worse than having no tool. That said I have tried a number of tools and approaches and would like to present JIRA as a tool I recommend for scrum.
