Agile Project Lifecycle: User Stories and Release Planning



In this presentation recorded during QCon London 2007, Rachel Davies, director of Agile Alliance, talks about the Agile development cycle starting with user stories and planning the releases. This presentation is less about "why" one should use Agile over other development process, and more about the practical "how" one should proceed about being agile.


Rachel Davies coaches teams in Agile software development techniques, such as TDD and planning with user stories. She is passionate about Agile software development because it increases the chance of success projects in the face of complex problems. Rachel is internationally recognized in her field, as both a frequent presenter at industry conferences and Chair of the Agile Alliance.
