Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Testing Peers podcast.
Join David, Simon, Russell and Chris as we talk about planning and estimation.
But, before we dive into the topic we take a brief look into the approaches the Peers take towards researching personal purchases and we discover Simon likes a good review!
This week’s topic was inspired by Jo Richards and her tweet about story points.
In true Peers tradition, when talking about story points, their value and implementation, we mention that it depends on context. Hooray!
The discussion leads to estimation, value, audience, inclusion of testing effort and more.
Some useful articles referencing topics covered in the episode:
