EuroSTAR – Dublin
Somewhere along the agile road, the story part of user stories was forgotten and we were left with a short template to describe a user’s need. It's time to get back to the roots of user stories and use storytelling to create an understanding between business, customers and developers. At EuroSTAR, Ulrika Park presents, “User Storytelling: The Lost Art of User Stories,” citing examples of how developers lose the whole picture when focusing on a template that doesn't describe the real story of business. She elaborates on the positive outcome if we brought back storytelling into user stories. Also, stop by the SmartBear booth at EuroSTAR for all the latest in software testing tools.
