    The heart of Agile is user stories, yet there is confusion on how to write them.  Many agile teams struggle to write user stories with just enough information so that developers can reasonably estimate the effort to implement.

    The following topics will be discussed during the workshop, and students will work through practical, hands-on exercise to reinforce concepts:

    What is a user story
    Why user stories
