From Conversation to Software
We all have coworkers, managers and customers demanding work from us. Feature here, bugfix there, just do what you're told. But don't you want to build stuff that matters? Are you not the expert here? What if I told you there is another way? You are the person to take the outcome of the project seriously. So help people solve their problems and grasp their opportunities!
In this soft skill talk we'll take a look at how you can do just that. We will write user stories that help you understand their problems. We will use story mapping to create meaningful and insightful choices for your clients. Finally we'll use release planning to predict and plan, together, where the project will end up. Join me and find out how you can turn conversation into software.
What will you know after the talk that you didn't know before?
Writing actual user stories, applying story mapping and release planning
Is this talk for me?
Yes, for everyone! Developers, project managers, product owners, scrum masters... If you are, in any way, involved in (software) projects.
