We used to write hundreds of pages of software documentation spelling out every detail of the system to be built. Every function point. Every possible usage scenario.
"The system shall do this..." and "The system shall do that..."
They were works of art.
The only problem? No one ever read them, and if they did, they quickly became obsolete as business conditions changed.
Today the foundation of the agile process is user stories, a lightweight technique to rapidly capture business requirements that gets the team on-vision and successfully delivering on stakeholder needs.
In this session, software engineering expert Dave Todaro will walk you step-by-step through the process of creating and managing user stories, both before a project begins as well as when the project is underway.

He is founder and President of Ascendle, a software consulting firm in southern New Hampshire that specializes in custom mobile and cloud development and Agile training and coaching.
