Excerpt

Learn how to improve your agile development process through User Story Mapping, a technique that you can use to gather requirements easier, get everyone on the same page, and plan out what needs to be done while keeping the "big picture" in mind.

Description

Gathering requirements is a necessary evil in software development. It’s often error-prone and time consuming. Agile methodologies and the Lean Startup approach have greatly improved the process, but there’s still something missing. User Story Mapping is a technique that you can use to gather requirements easier, get everyone on the same page, and plan out what needs to be done while keeping the “big picture” in mind. In this session, you’ll learn how to use this technique and integrate it into your development process.
