If you’re a software developer do you have a bulletproof system for managing your projects? Are you making use of source control and issue tracking to ensure accountability or are you “free climbing?” What about documentation - do you have have a convenient way to build out your docs and cross-reference specific issues and revisions of the software? If you answered “no” to any of these questions you’ll want to take a look at the JumpBox for Redmine.

The Redmine application is a project management system that offers integrated source control, issue tracking, wiki features, message forums, roadmaps, flexible alerts and numerous other features for collaborating on a software project. In this video we’ll dive into the fundamentals of using Redmine. By the time you’re finished watching you’ll have what you need to get started with this powerful tool.
