Is it a book or software and for what purpose?
For whom (programmer or architect or anyone)?

Thanks.

Hi,

ExtremePlanner is Web-based project planning and tracking software that helps development teams collaborate. It's especially useful for distributed teams using Agile processes such as Scrum and Extreme Programming.

The basic idea in agile development methods is to prioritize features (or user stories) with customer input, then deliver software in regular, short iterations (usually 2 to 4 weeks). The quick turnaround helps minimize waste from miscommunications or incomplete specs.

ExtremePlanner lets a development team enter user stories (features or defects), estimate and prioritize them, divide them into tasks, and track progress across multiple releases and iterations. It also helps organize test cases, related files (documents, images, etc.).

Hope that helps.

--Dave

Hi dave,

We use Rational Portfolio Manager in our current project. I have also used MS Project for similar purposes in my previous projects.

Can you kindly specify how different (or better) is the Extreme Planner from the other products available for Project planning and tracking.

Thanks Dave.

Some more doubts are:

Is it �web based� or we can download and use it?

If it is web based, and then will the license be valid forever or just for some time?

And if it downloadable then can we download the full version or just the test version through this license key?

Thanks a lot.

Sounds interesting. Does Extreme Planner work with build tools, testing coverage tools, and so forth? If so, which ones? Is it something that's easily extended?

Hi Prakash,

ExtremePlanner has a model that is focused on teams that are using Agile methods (such as XP or Scrum), and supports the concepts of Releases, Iterations, User Stories, etc.

Access is browser-based to support teams that are distributed across multiple locations.

Hi Ben,

No special support for build tools, test coverage toosl, etc.

What kind of support did you have in mind?

ExtremePlanner is web-based, meaning you access it through a browser, but the server software can be downloaded and installed on your server.

This promotion is for a fully-functional downloadable 2-user version, and for one fully-functional 5-user version.

(We do also have a partner that offers a hosted version of the software at http://www.extremeplannerlive.com if that's something you're interested in).
