This 2 hour session will be a hands-on simulation of estimating, planning, building and reviewing. We will conduct multiple iterations and learn about the entire Agile delivery cycle. Participants will experience both the customer and developer roles (no programming skills required). Things you will learn: How to deliver maximum business value. How to sequence requirements. How to make an iteration plan. How to assess the progress of the plan.

The Cincinnati Agile Roundtable is an informal group of software professionals meeting since 2002 to talk and sometimes have a speaker. We strive to become better software developers and share our learning and experience with others.
Above all we understand that software development is an activity done by human beings, not resources. Communication, Coordination, and Respect are vital for successful and profitable projects.
Technologies that have influenced us are Object-Oriented Programming, Extreme Programming, Patterns, Agile Processes like Scrum, the World Wide Web, Java, .NET, Smalltalk, Ruby, Perl, PHP, C/C++. (more eventually: maybe Clojure , Erlang, or Scala).
