Requirements and Estimating - state of the art
A chance for experience agile developers to learn and share state of the art tips for improving requirements gathering and project estimation.
You've been doing agile for a while and use story cards and burn down charts on a regular basis, but you'd still like to improve the quality of the applications you build and your ability to estimate the scope of those applications and manage business stakeholder expectations.
A combination of presentation and open discussion, this will be a chance to discuss and debate best practices in requirements gathering, estimating and expectation management with your peers, sharing best practices from projects large and small around the world.
Prerequisite: Experience working on agile projects
