Teach Yourself Jira Administration

Teach Yourself Jira Administration is my selection of best Jira Administration courses for Jira - over 30 hours of recordings. 

Over the years I have used and reviewed many tutorials and courses. In this book you will find only the few recommended by me, with good and effective content for which you will not have to pay (or pay very little, if you follow my instructions). Additionally, there is also one recommended course bundled with a paid certification exam.
