3:45 PM Saturday Room: 1401Agile evangelists claim that extensive written requirements can be dispensed with in favor of lighter-weight 'stories'. It sounds easier, certainly, but can it really be as good? Won't all of the important details get lost? We will stage a participatory showdown between traditional and agile requirements. May the best requirements win!
9:45 AM Saturday Room: 3525Agile 101
10:30 AM Sunday Room: 4201Agile is a holistic approach to software development that grew out of the experience and insight of people working in the field. It follows then, that the best way to learn about agile is to experience it. Over the course of this short workshop, we will engage the power of simulations and learning games to evoke and explore various aspects of the Agile experience. Warning! This will be a participatory learning experience, without a PowerPoint safety net!
Areas we will explore will include:<br>
- Communication on an agile team<br>
- Directive vs. Participatory project management approaches<br>
- Batch-and-Queue vs. Continuous Flow in software development<br>
