At TechEd Europe 2010 in Berlin, I will be doing three breakout sessions and one panel discussion: Silverlight v HTML5.

My breakout sessions are:

  • Scrum, but
  • Agile Estimation

This is the first time I am formally doing the Scrum, but session, however, Joel and I did it at TechEd North America at our pre-con. We’ll (I invited Joel, even though he is not an “official” speaker to do the session with me) walk the audience through a few slides about Scrum, Kanban, XP and “Agile is about values, not rules” and the “buffet table” approach. After about 10 minutes of us blabbing, we will open it to questions. We are prepared to speak about four scenarios: Scrum/Agile in the Enterprise, Consulting, Remote (and outsourced) teams, and ISVs. Should be fun, and interactive! Bring lots of questions!!!

The Agile Estimation talk is a repeat of my talk last year and we are doing it twice since there is a lot of demand.

The session times are below. When I am not doing sessions, I will be at the Telerik Booth. You can find us at E 83+E84, very close to where we were last year. I’ll be glad to talk to you about the sessions, agile in general, or the Telerik tools. If you check out our CTP of WP7 controls now, we have a special offer for you: As a special gift to all TechEd Europe attendees visiting our booth, you will receive a free license of these controls once they are finally released, if you download the CTP now.

See you in Berlin! Winking smile

Breakout Session

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.

Agile Estimation

Breakout Session

Stephen Forte

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.
