use scrumblr
------------
if you'd like to use scrumblr in your organization, you can use my hosted version at scrumblr.ca. new boards are made simply by modifying the url to something unique. e.g. your team could use a shared board at: scrumblr.ca/thisisoursecretboard23423242
alternatively, you can follow the instructions below to host scrumblr yourself. it is very simple -- it just uses redis and node.js.
browser support
---------------
scrumblr works on up to date chrome and firefox browsers. enable websockets for optimal performance. tested mainly on chrome for osx.

design philosophy
-----------------
my goal was to avoid buttons and ui (everything is edit in place). everything should be discoverable (no "help"). the look is meant to be as close as possible to Well.ca's real sprint board. see picture below.
