Chapter 1. JIRA Agile Basics

Agile software development has been gaining momentum over the years as more and more people start to see problems with the traditional model, and the benefits agile methodologies bring. In agile, development happens in iterative cycles and improvements are made in each iteration. Feedback is gathered as early as possible, improving customer engagement and team collaboration. All of these actions help development teams to better anticipate and manage changes.

Atlassian, the maker of popular issue tracking software JIRA, recognizes the values agile can bring. It has become a leader in agile software development by coming out with JIRA Agile, a product that adds agile support to JIRA. In this chapter, we will introduce the basics of JIRA Agile.
