Are you new to Scrum? Have you heard of Scrum and have a high level understanding, but would like to see it in action? This three part series will give you the chance to join a Scrum team and find out first hand how Scrum really works. In each part we will cover one aspect of Scrum and then put that knowledge into practice giving everyone hands on experience as part of a Scrum team.
In Part 1 of the series we built a product backlog. The next step in scrum is estimating and planning. In Part 2 of the series we will talk about this process and the role the ScrumMaster and Team play in this process. We will then once again break into teams and practice what we learned by estimating the backlogs we produced last month and then starting to plan our release/sprints.
