Getting Started with JIRA

Video description

Companies use different ways to organize their projects, and the type of methodology they use determines the tool that is best suited for their needs. Jira is a project management software designed to help teams of all types to manage work.

Jira is an issue tracking and project management tool that is highly configurable and flexible, which allows it to be used in a wide variety of processes.

There are different versions of Jira available, but the core concepts are applicable across these versions. In this course, we will be using a non-premium version of Jira Software on Cloud.
