# Tuesday, October 12, 2010

I will be speaking this year at TechEd Europe in Berlin, Germany from November 8th to November 12th. I’ll be doing two talks:

DPR201 - Agile Estimation (Tuesday Nov 9th)

Track: Development Practices

We’re agile, so we don’t have to estimate and have no deadlines, right? Wrong! This session will review the problem with estimations in projects today and then give an overview of the concept of agile estimation and the notion of re-estimation. We’ll learn about user stories, story points, team velocity, and how to apply them all to estimation and iterative re-estimation. We will take a look at the cone of uncertainty and how to use it to your advantage. We’ll then take a look at the tools we will use for Agile Estimation, including planning poker, Visual Studio TFS and much more.

And also with Joel (though he is not listed on the session as the other speaker):

DPR301 - Scrum, but (Thursday November 11th)

Track: Development Practices

Having challenges implementing Scrum in your organization? Have you been using Scrum but need to bend the rules to make it work in your organization? Do you practice a little Scrum with a mix of Kanban? Then this session if for you! Come and learn about implementing Scrum, but with a few changes. We'll look at customizing Scrum in your environment and look specifically at how to implement Scrum for the enterprise, ISVs, consulting and remote teams.

See ya there!
