Scrum Essentials: Exercise in Estimating Relative Effort (Team)


Estimating Relative Effort: A Scrum Team Exercise Thanks to Tomasz de Jastrzebiec Wykowski for this idea. Estimating relative effort can be more complex than it looks. In this exercise, you will work with your teammates to explore estimating the effort it would take to throw different objects. Gather a Scrum team (6 +/- 3 people), and get ready to play planning poker in order to estimate based on the following: "Given a series of objects, each object must be thrown and must fly at least 3 feet."

You Don’t Look Like a Programmer


After talking about the weather, one of the easiest ways to strike up a conversation with someone is to ask them "what do you do?" Like you, I've been asked this a lot. I don't know what kind of responses you get, but one of the top ten I receive is, "Really? You don't look like a programmer!" I usually smile, and try to find something witty to say, often asking them in return what they think a programmer should look like.
