Be Agile!

AGILE Day is the event dedicated to developers and software project managers and other persons who wish to become proficient in the application of agile methodologies in software development projects.

Limited seats are available!

The Masterclass theme is "Requirements, User Stories and Backlogs" presented by Allan Kelly.

In Agile, like traditional software development, work begins with customer requirements. Many Agile teams though work with small User Stories (short stories from the Users) and backlogs (list of what has to be realized, a list of requirements) rather than long documents and detailed specifications.

Interest subjects at our Masterclass:

  •  we will look at how Agile teams work with User Stores and multiple backlogs to guide their work.
  •  we will look at User Stories, the difference between requirements and specifications, how specification by example and acceptance test criteria are used with stories to add detail, how stories are prioritised and we will consider business benefit, the value of stories, where value comes from and how much each story is worth.
  •  we will look at how backlogs can be managed for this sprint, coming sprints and into the distant future.
"This workshop is highly interactive, we will simulate doing Agile requirements work. Participants will get to write stories, critique stories and assign a monetary value to each and every story", says Allan Kelly.
Agile Day will become a valuable asset to any agile project.

Special guest: Allan Kelly

From UK - for the first time in Romania

Allan Kelly "I started my career coding (Pascal, C++, C, Java), after a sojourn in Silicon Valley I returned to London and realised I could fix the code problems.

The more significant problems were what we were building and how we were building.

That led me to an MBA, Patterns, Product Management, Agile and writing two books.”
