We’re thrilled to announce that Scrumpy Poker is no longer Beta! The product is now mature enough to continue its way further. Thank you all who contributed to this release! Thank you all who patiently waited until most of the bugs are fixed. Thank you all who suggested improvements in both the usability of the interface and the feature set currently available in the product!
Scrumpy Poker started with the idea to make fun out of the Scrum planning sessions. To make them pleasant and productive. Fun comes first, it makes people more open to discussion during the estimation process. It can turn a boring refinement session into something somehow more interesting than it usually is. This leads to more accurate story estimates.
Fun comes first, so is the user interface adapted to this fun process to make refinement sessions smooth. Yes, this reflects the UI – sometimes a bit clumsy, but it makes cool experience once you get the feeling of collaboration.
At some point it was a challenging task to catch up with the demand of both features and performance. Today we get hundreds of thousands of daily sessions from companies worldwide. We serve a lot of small projects, more than 2100 active Jira instances, many fortune 500 companies and big enterprises, all enjoying the Scrumpy Poker’s estimation experience.
Our journey continues with more and more features targeting the enterprise customers. We aim to provide on-premise installations for Jira Server/DataCenter. We have plans to continue expanding in the segment of integrations with other platforms. And a lot of new features in the backlog are waiting for attention.
