South Florida Software Symposium
May 18 - 20, 2007 - Miami, FL
Have you heard about SCRUM or XP but never done it? If you want to give it a try, this session will allow you to participate in planning and executing several agile iterations. A working knowledge of either XP or SCRUM will be helpful but not mandatory.
After a brief introduction, we will assume roles, create a simple backlog, roadmap, and complete several iterations, finishing with a short retrospective.
