For those of you living in the Ottawa area, this Saturday (May 4th), I will make a presentation at the Ottawa IT Camp. This event is free and takes place at the Algonquin College. I am speaking at 10h30am in room 119.
I will do a talk about “Agile Practices for Requirements Discovery”. In addition to explaining how to groom efficiently the product backlog, I will teach, using TFS 2012, how to use a collaboration board to track backlog grooming.
Agile Practices for Requirements Discovery
A recurring challenge with software development is how to respond efficiently to the constantly changing requirements. Throughout this session, using TFS 2012, we will examine efficient practices for backlog grooming. Come learn how to improve your existing process using visual aids inspired by Kanban boards. Walk away with proven practices to organize and structure the collaboration. We will explore well-known practices such as expressing desirements with user stories, illustrating stories with storyboards and sizing stories using planning poker. Armed with tools and skills acquired, you can expect to see significant improvements in your ability to manage your product backlog.
