Agilo: Scrum plugin for Trac

We use Trac as project collaboration space[1] within our company. We have been trying out agile-methodology (specially Scrum) for projects, but recently we went more formal with the approach using a software to manage the whole process.

I evaluated some software for agile project management and found good ones including ThoughtWorksMingle, but it’s not open-source and I believe, we can’t afford it (licensing, subscription).

We found ‘Agilo‘, a plugin for Trac, is easy to setup and was intuitive enough to get us started, considering our (no) experience with formal agile-methodology.

Do you want to get started with Scrum and don’t want to invest time learning a complicated software? You don’t need a software to do Scrum. However, if you like managing projects using a software and you are comfortable with Trac, try Agilo.

BTW! This is yet another post to spread the word about the software and tools, we find useful and have been using.
