Introduce My Favorite Agile Estimation Tool for Distributed Team

It would be better if we could provide story estimation in person, but in most situations we have to do that remotely. We also tried Playing Poker online, but we did not favor the tool. In this talk, I want to share with you an effective way to provide story estimation online by using free Google tools. Our team loves it. I would love sharing with you all so your team can have a fun as well.

Solving the global debt crisis - technical debt that is.

Our world is awash in technical debt. This is a tough problem and one that will at some point, if it hasn't already, result in catastrophe. As an agile coach and trainer I spend a large amount of time and effort helping people unlearn poor programming practices. And many of these poor practices were framed as 'best practices' when they learned to code. This is wasteful. I want to share my ideas on how to solve this. ...more »
