I was recently invited to do another talk on agile methods at the Center for Digital Technology and Management in Munich, Germany.
This time, the talk covered the following areas:
- user stories
- agile estimating and planning
After examining some of the characteristics of good user stories, the students practiced writing some (with “As a …, I want …, so that …” clauses and acceptance tests on the back).
We then used the planning poker technique to estimate some user stories for the team’s first Sprint.
Once gain, thanks very much to Ana Balevic for organising and hosting the talk and to the students for some interesting questions and discussion.
