On Thursday night I will be speaking at the SofiaDev .NET User Group. I’ll be talking about Agile Estimation.

The meeting will be at the Microsoft Bulgaria office, you can RSVP here.

Agile Patterns: Agile Estimation
We’re agile, so we don’t have to estimate and have no deadlines, right? Wrong! This session will consist of review of the problem with estimation in projects today and then an overview of the concept of agile estimation and the notion of re-estimation. We’ll learn about user stories, story points, team velocity, 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 Team System, and much more. This is a very interactive session, so bring a lot of questions!
