DRAFT: 'What is a user story?'

Published on 11 September 2023.

This is a work in progress that will change. Like to see it finished? Let me know by sending me an email.

I’ve been on a quest to learn “real agile”. Before I researched CI. Now its time for user stories.



What people say a story is:

“Do you put backlog refinement on the backlog?”

XP: “Write stories about improving your software development process. What is your budget for improvement?”

What value? To whom?

Ron: “What kinds of value does your project deliver to its users? To your organization? To the team? What value does it deliver to you?”

Information has value. (Spike solution.)

Acceptance test: when is a story done?

Adding features/capabilities to product needs story? Refacotring does not add any ability? Testing neither. Both increase quality, but not capability.

Example: SSL certs

Example: Testing

Example: Moving hosting provider

AI chronicels: stories show progress towards a larger goal.
