Dave Johnson on open web technologies, social software and software development
This sounds cool. I'd love love to see the slides or better yet, a sceen-cast.
Collaborative estimation and planning is a key concept for all agile development process frameworks. We will present a solution for playing "Planning Poker" that enables distributed development teams to estimate the effort of work items and build consensus in a collaborative way.
The prototype uses Google Wave as a collaboration platform and OSLC (http://www.open-services.net) for seamless integration with the developer IDE and work environment. We will show a demo on how a distributed team can estimate user stories and tasks from a product backlog in a collaborative way, and instantly use the results as the base for further sprint planning.
Additionally, attendees will learn some basic concepts and features about Google Wave, OSLC and IBM Rational Team Concert.
