    1-Day Agile Estimating and Planning Training in Ireland

    08:00

    Dublin


    One of the most important aspects of agile development training is estimating and planning. Yes, these are important, even for agile software development. Although agile is a fluid and iterative process, that doesn’t mean that planning doesn’t have a place in its programming and project management.

    Despite the many worthless plans that we’ve all seen—which may make us want to skip planning altogether—this Agile Estimating and Planning Training will demonstrate that it’s possible to create accurate project plans useful for programming testing—and projecting forward from 6-9 months. Our Agile Estimating and Planning Training will teach you how to create practical, useful and reliable plans for your software development projects.

    If your crew view planning as something to be avoided, or your organization uses plans as something to hold against development crew, this popular estimating and planning course can help your company break both of those attitudes and cycles.

    Attendees will leave with a solid understanding and experience of agile release and iteration planning. The course also looks at various approaches to estimating including unit-less points and ideal time. The class will present four specific techniques for deriving reliable estimates, including how to use the popular Planning Card technique and other techniques that dramatically improve a project’s chances of on-time completion.

    By using this approach to estimating, crew learn to answer the ever-challenging questions that plague every development crew: “When will we be done?” and “How soon can we have all of these features?”

    PMPs: This course counts for 7.5 Professional Development Units (PDUs).

    You Will Learn

    • How to create an accurate and useful project plan
    • The importance of estimating size and deriving duration
    • The differences between story points and ideal time
    • The advantages of an abstract measure of size
    • Techniques for creating estimates
    • When and how to re-estimate
    • How and when to perform release and iteration planning
    • Tips for communicating about estimates and plans

    What You Get

    • High quality training from an industry expert
    • A light breakfast buffet, a lunch, an afternoon snack, and continuously replenished drinks
    • A printed copy of the course materials

    Course Outline

    RECOSI conference


    Royal Marine Hote, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin


    Electrical refurbishment and reuse company RECOSI (Regional and European Co-Operative for Social Industry), in partnership with the International Computer Refurbisher Summit (ICRS), is to host Europe’s first conference of computer refurbishers and resellers October 29-30th in the Royal Marine Hotel in Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin. 

    Sponsored by Microsoft, the conference brings together IT and electronic refurbishers and resellers from across Europe and the U.S. to showcase new developments and examples of best practices in this fledgling but burgeoning industry and to explore the many exciting challenges and opportunities that Ireland and Europe face as consumption of devices and equipment continues to rise and the issue of how to dispose of or reuse them safely and economically becomes more pressing.  In this regard, conference host RECOSI is leading the way as a not-for profit organisation that helps social enterprises commercialise their activity in the refurbishment and reuse of such equipment and, in the process, is creating job opportunities across Europe, including in Ireland, where it has set up an office in Naas, Co. Kildare. 

     In its approach to this problem, RECOSI has adopted an unconventional commercial model that brings together specialist companies such as Microsoft, ICRS and others into partnership with social enterprises that refurbish, resell or donate used, licensed and guaranteed electrical items that would otherwise end up as Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE).  In recognition of public concerns over misuse of data, RECOSI has also engaged with Tabernus, the global leader in proven certified data erasure, to ensure that all software and data is securely wiped from each device.

    ICS IT Executive Focus: Developing an IT Cost Optimisation Programme

    9.30am – 1pm

    Bewley’s Hotel, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4


    Organisations rely heavily on Information Technology. IT is now typically one of the largest line items on the CAPEX and OPEX budgets. Despite IT costs attracting major attention within most organisations, few have real IT cost management structures.

    This workshop will introduce an IT Cost Optimisation framework, along with tools and techniques to identify where each organisation should focus its efforts to optimise IT costs. Subsequent workshops will drill down into further detail on individual topics.

    The workshop is intended to be interactive and participants are encouraged to participate in the context of their own organisation in terms of what may and may not be applicable. Given the interactive nature of the workshop a maximum of 12 to 15 participants is recommended.
