This story of the User Story – from Story Cards to Product Backlog Items and Story Maps - is Inspired by the Soup Stone Folk story.
What ingredients were added? And is the result as filling and nutritious as a good hot Autumn soup? Or is it more like a light appetizer?
The Epilog will take us on a picnic with a famous inventor – who realizes how some inventions can lead to… reinventions…
So if you like stories: User Stories, Folk Stories, or Gyro Gearloose Stories – come and join us for soup and story telling on this dark November evening.
