Let the sprints begin!
We've had our first sprint planning session, and it's gone pretty well. Over the past few weeks we have come up with an initial product backlog, and I've estimated all the stories using story points. The only snag is there are over 200 stories! Still, we managed to pick out five to develop and test in the first sprint. We're starting off with two week sprints, and we'll see in the retrospectives how well that works out. I'll be trying various ways of presenting stuff on the project whiteboard, and I will post here how well each one works for us.
