What is JimFlow?
Should we use a physical board or an electronic tool?
In the agile world, this question is the center of many heated debates. Both solutions have their advantages and both have their flaws.
Physical Kanban boards have visibility and presence. They encourage face-to-face communication, enhance stand-up experiences and serve as a constant reminder of team goals and achievements.
Digital boards are accessible from anywhere, making remote collaboration a breeze. Digital boards are great for distributed teams and maintenance of charts, and they link directly to the associated tickets.
With JimFlow, you don't have to choose.
JimFlow is a hybrid tool that combines advantages of both worlds: A physical board linking all tickets to its digital counterpart.
Through the use of corresponding QR Codes, a camera monitors the physical board, automatically detecting any QR code movement.
Then, using JimFlow software, an electronic image of the board is generated, viewable in any web browser.

JimFlowCam runs on your Canon camera.
It enables fully automated intervall shooting including auto-delete of the old images due to privacy and space issues.
JimFlowKlopfer handles the magic. A little application, written in python, which scans the images for QR Codes, sorts them and creates an output file.
JimFlowWall manages the boards and snapshots and displays them in a digitalized format.
