I love JIRA and hate JIRA at the same time. I love it because it is a very good project management tool. I hate it becasue I feel the UI is a little bit out dated which also makes the workflow a little bit difficult. I redesigned the UI and UX of JIRA. The goal is to make it more modern and clarify diffent elements of JIRA such as epic, story and sub-task. Also, trying to make it more engaging, I have implemented gamification features into the workflow.
