This is a highly interactive course where we will be walking through activities together as well as individually. You will create a project and will go through the navigation, issues, issue types, and planning views. We will create filters, customize workflows, as well as create reports and dashboards. This course is for anyone that is new to Jira and familiar with agile principles and methodologies. You will need to create a free Jira account at Atlassian. It is easiest with a Gmail account but can be done with a different email address as well.  We recommend a dual monitor setup so that you can view zoom as well as view Jira classwork.
