Nice discussion on real world issues with software projects

Just watched a good session from TechEd USA 2013, it was billed as Agile Software Development with Microsoft Visual Studio ALM but has little that was specifically TFS based; no demos just war stories from Aaron Bjork and Peter Provost

It is a good discussion of the problems, experiences and solutions the Microsoft Visual Studio team went through when trying to move to agile development, including

  • Sprint lengths, be consistent across teams
  • Retrospectives, do you actually act on them?
  • Technical debt, do you write features or bugs?
  • Measure what you do
  • What is the role of the product owner/manager?

Well worth a watch
