Axosoft Creates Visual Project Management with OnTime Version 10 - Axosoft SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Axosoft, the company behind the leading project management software for software developers, released version 10 of its OnTime software today, featuring a drag-and-drop Planning Board that makes managing tasks simple and visual. The new feature, called the Scrum Planning Board, illustrates each task, requirement, defect, and incident in the system as a card. At a glance, these cards show what stage the item is in, who it is assigned to, how much time has been worked and how much time is remaining. The cards can be picked up and moved to subsequent workflow stages as the item progresses, and each "move" can trigger custom e-mail alerts to the project manager or team member, notifying them of status updates. "Version 10 has completely changed the game for not only software development teams, but also for any business who manages multiple projects," said Hamid Shojaee, CEO & founder of Axosoft.

Liste comparative des gestionnaires de projets From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The following is a comparison of project management software. General information Features Monetary features See also SmartQ: Visual Project-Management That Conforms to You When it comes to project management, most web apps offer the same basic features: a group of to-do lists, some kind of messaging board, a few gigs of file storage, shared document-editing, a calendar of some sort, and if you’re lucky, a set of reports. But what most don’t offer is the ability to develop a project-management workflow that conforms to the way your team already works, and without this customization, you lose precious time trying to get everybody up to speed on the new way of doing things. In my experience, that ramp-up time usually results in project members abandoning the app and reverting to project management by email. Enter SmartQ. Overview

After hours of searching, I realized this was more difficult than it should have been. It appears a number of Ajax event calendars were prototyped in 2005-2007 but never matured. Many of those links are broken or useless today. And, when you search for Ajax calendar, most of the results are actually date pickers- not full blown scheduling components. Here are the good event/scheduling calendars I found:
10 Unsung Collaboration Tools — Many of Them Free Collaboration is in full swing on the web, for both social and work-oriented purposes.

They are often physically located in infoshops, social centers, adult education centers, public schools, public libraries or on university campuses, but may relocate to industrial or warehouse space when they need more room. Hackerspaces with open membership became common within Germany in the 90s in the orbit of the German Chaos Computer Club, with the C-base being probably the most impressive example. The concept however was limited to less than a dozen of spaces within Germany, and did not spread beyond borders at first. Most likely this was because initial founding costs were prohibitive for small groups without the support of a large organization like the CCC.
