Partner Power Hour: Estimating Team Velocity in an Agile Work Environment
May 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
As a Software Engineer, your chances of working where the Agile methodology is used, particularly Scrum, is highly likely. We’ll discuss the brief history and basics of Agile and Scrum. Then we’ll focus on how you can accurately and reliably predict the amount of work your team can produce in an iteration (your team’s velocity). This is a crucial component of mastering the Agile methodology and will provide you a much-needed strength for the workforce. Finally, a retrospective and Q&A session will conclude the presentation.
