Abstract:
The concept of agile software development has gained significant momentum in the last 10 years and is currently replacing the classical waterfall model used in the past.  This presentation focuses on Scrum which is one of the most popular agile trends.  Here we describe the artifacts used, ceremonies, metrics, and results using projects that I have participated in.  We also dive into one of the most detested, and seemingly useless developer activities, that is  ‘Estimates’.  We introduce Story points as a system for quantifying relative effort and then use empirical data from the team’s actual performance to forecast project completion.
