Indeed a great course which explains the agile methodology concepts from theory to practical implementation with JIRA. And it will definitely help learners if they are using JIRA in the organization.

Learning Agile Development on Atlassian through Coursera has been a great experience. The course provides a comprehensive introduction to Agile development methodologies, including Scrum and Kanban, and how they can be implemented using Atlassian tools such as Jira and Confluence. The course is designed for both beginners and experienced developers, providing a solid foundation for understanding Agile development principles and best practices. The course content is well-organized, easy to follow, and includes a variety of resources such as video lectures, quizzes, and hands-on exercises. The instructors are experienced professionals in the field and are always available to answer questions and provide guidance. Additionally, the course offers real-world examples and case studies, which helped me to understand how Agile development is applied in different organizations and industries. Overall, the course was a great way to gain knowledge in Agile development and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about Agile methodologies and how to use Atlassian tools.

This is probably the best-taught course I've taken on Coursera. You don't just learn the individual tools of the program and then wonder how it works as a whole. You constantly learn how these tools work on a big picture level. The labs are great and really get you to play with all the functions and explore how they work and what you can do. There are questions to answer throughout the videos, so you are constantly getting feedback and seeing how well you are learning everything. I'm not in software development, but I was looking to get into QA or QC for software or gaming, and Jira was the one qualification I didn't have to get the job. So now I can put this on my Resume' and have a chance to get those jobs. So even if you don't have a programming background, you can easily learn the material because of how well this course is taught. I would recommend this course to everyone. And even if you aren't looking to get a job in tech, there are many practical applications to your own life that this program makes easier to manage. So glad I took this course.

The Course is Recommended for Beginners who wants to become Cloud Engineer, DevOps Engineer, Network Engineer and also working closely as Project Manager IT in the company or startup. Besides that because I was background in non coders or not a programmer or developer who works for software development like making a website or mobile apps obviously. I work last before as IT Staff in Asuransi Sinarmas Company for 1 Years from 1 October 2020 - 30 September 2021. Just like that, The Course is more Practical for 90 % Materials and 10 % Theoritical for examination. No doubt, Exactly this is the best free course for IT Administrators who adore or switch career to better positions.

Great course that goes into proper detail showing you advanced elements of how to use, customise and configure Jira for software development teams and processes. The course is broken down into 4 modules, each with 5 or more lectures, covering around 10 topics with multiple choice questions that pop-up multiple times throughout the video. There is also 1-2+ labs per each lecture so you get a proper hands-on experience in the topics shown in the videos. There's also a test at the end of each module where you need to score 80% or more and a final hands-on project on the last module.

I came into this course as someone who used the basics of Jira in their every day job (self taught) but was about to take on a more administrative role. I found weeks 3 and 4 most helpful.
The course has a good mix of early on basics which will help form a good foundation knowledge of Jira and its functions. Then it goes into more depth which would suit someone with administrator or project overseer-type responsibilities.
Steve Byrnes has narrated the videos clearly and explains at an adequate pace so that the student doesn't feel rushed or bored.

The Introduction about Agile Concepts are right. When I talked to my manager or workmates we agreed in the whole subject about the process, parts and so on. About the tool at the time I took this course some things changed: names, option's ubication, etc; but it keeps the same essence. It results interesting the last part about versions; personally I haven't used versions in any project and this course gave to me an insight on how and why, and now is worth giving a look to some of Jira features. Really appreciate this course.

Great course for individuals who wish to improve their Agile project management skills using Jira software. I have been using Jira with my current employer for over a year. This course has shown me many aspects of the software that have been under-utilised. Jira is truly a behemoth of a program for any projects ranging from simple use-cases to complex multi-national conglomerate projects. I would recommend it to anyone looking to improve their competencies in the project management field.

As we all know Agile is a Project Development Framework that is the most commonly used Approach in SDLC(Software Development Life Cycle) Process. Where Jira is a Product/Project Management tool that works according to the Agile Approach that is very helpful for the Management team to manage their Projects step by step seamlessly and effectively. I recommend this course to be a part of Management studies in universities so that students aquire amazing skill for their professional careers.

A very good introduction to project management styles including waterfall, scientific and agile. After this course, you'll be comfortable with project and task management in Atlassian Jira. Good theory and practice sections.
It would be much easier to understand the material if this course includes video examples of all interactions with the Jira interface. Instead of just pictures with arrows, underlines, and rectangular emphasis of all fields and buttons that one should click.

I have been using Jira at my workplace for the past 2 years and Agile + Jira for the past year, but I didn't have a basic grip about Agile or Jira.
This course has helped me in filling in the gaps. Now I understand Agile methodologies better and can apply the same to the tasks ahead while using Jira to accurately portray the work.
I have seen JQL queries being used in our Confluence pages and I am confident I can create queries that can showcase my team's work better.

Excellent walkthrough of the JIRA software all the way. Instructor had explained the agile, kanban and scrum concepts very beautifully as I was a novice to these having worked only in waterfall models. One area of improvement I would suggest is that the JIRA software had the projects as "company managed" and "team managed" project types instead of the classic and new-gen types mentioned in the course. Guess it is probably an update from the JIRA software end.

This has been an awesome course and Steve Byrnes was very responsive to questions and issues in the discussion forum. I started out with very little tool knowledge and even less confidence in my ability to learn Jira on my own. This class has really helped me improve my ability to confidently use to do various things. With that said, I'm so excited that I was able to complete the final project without ever looking at m notes. Success!! Thanks, Steve.

This course introduces you to the basic work with Jira and agile project management. It is aimed at people that have a fundamental understanding of project management already and want to look into Atlassians Jira Tool for future managing of (not only) software projects. It is very descritpive and well structured and gets you to take the first steps in the tool yourself, from which you can gofurther and explore its functions and potentials.

as a begginer, i might not be compenent to give rating, but i liked it.
it was easy to understand, i liked that there is on-hands tasks so i could try to do it my self, and i really did it.
a s a non-english speaker, often it was a little bit too fast for me, there were moments when i needed to pause for a second so i can catch up with the material, but i guess thats fine because im not fluent in english, and also because its new material.

This is a very nice and useful introduction to the Agile methodology with a great tool such as Atlassian Jira. I have never used before but now I'm using for work and I'm quite happy to have a way to track my work planning. About the course, it's well designed, the videos and hands-on sections are well connected and give you the feeling that you're learning applicable stuff. I now understand why this methodology is so used currently.

Good introduction course for first-time users or people familiar with Atlassian SW and want to know better of options they haven't used before. Good overview of Agile/Scrum. Follow the labs carefully and things should go smoothly. Please keep in mind in JIRA you will sometimes need to refresh (F5) MANUALLY to see some changes, or else you will think you did something wrong. Most modifications however do refresh in real-time.

Excellent course with relevant materials for configuring Jira boards. I find myself referring back to these materials, and the readings are very helpful in making sure that I understand the lectures & can eventually create my own project boards. I particularly enjoyed the lectures on Agile Methods as they provide an excellent overview of various project management techniques with a sufficient amount of repetitive content.

This was a great course. I've been using JIRA at my company for 10+ years, so I'm familiar with which buttons to click, and the general gist of how/why things work and the workflows. However, I didn't know a lot of these details about Agile, and since we mainly use scrum boards, I wasn't too familiar with kanban. It was a really worthwhile course for me. I enjoyed it and learned some things!

Lo recomiendo. Comencé el curso sin nunca haber utilizado Jira (tampoco sin saber realmente su función) porque lo necesitaba para mi trabajo. Con lo aprendido tengo las bases para hacer uso práctico del software y continuar descubriéndolo. La explicación es fácil de entender y tiene ejercicios para reforzar lo explicado. No toma más de una o dos semanas, vale mucho el esfuerzo.

I learnt so much about Agile with Altassian Jira, its seems so abstract at first, but I later catch up and find its simple to learn about. This course has giving me a edge in knowing much about Jira software, and I believe I'm going to be conversant with the software soonest. Thank you Atlassian for the hands on project works. It's really make it easy for me to comprehend.

This course is very handy when you have to get to know Jira functionality in the short term. It covers all essential topics which you would use from the first day of your project start (and even before it starts). Also here is some useful information about Agile management theory in addition to the instructions on how to use Jira. I am really grateful for this course

Все понравилось. Из возможных улучшений - хотелось бы более сложных заданий на лабораторных работах + примеров использования из реальных Agile-команд / Everything is fine. A little potential improvement would be to add a bit more diffucult tasks in labs and also give a number of examples from real -life Agile teams. Thanks a lot to the author of this course.
