Mirakel, a simple Orchard site

Mirakel, the site for my wife's new venture is up and running, since a couple of days now and I'm happy with the results :)

The site is based on Orchard CMS which is an ASP.Net MVC based web content management system.
Orchard is a very active open source project led by these guys with plenty of support on their codeplex forum next to their good documentation.

Tools for agile software development

I'm involved in a couple of projects at the moment, one of those is the website of my wife Ira, who's starting up her own business Mirakel where she's organising workshops for kids.

I'm always looking for ways to make work more simple and more accessible whilst keeping costs at a minimum. I know there are a lot of tools out there, but I thought I'd write up my list of tools - Trello, Google docs and Balsamiq - which work perfectly together and costs are minimal.
