Swimlanes for Scrum now on CodePlex

Swimlanes for Scrum is now on Codeplex for everyone to use. Like I mentioned in the last post, this project started off as a learning exercise. But I figured, there might be other Scrum teams out there who might need lean and mean web-based Scrum Swimlane taskboard for use, in daily stand-up scrum meetings.

So here it goes, modify the web.config file to suit your settings, host it on IIS, set the application pool to “Enable 32 bit applications” and off you go.
