During this past section, you learned all about Agile Web Development using the SCRUM approach and specifically how to create and manage User Stories with Pivotal Tracker. In this assignment, you'll get a chance to put that to use by setting up a project for an e-commerce application you'll actually build during our professional Flex or Immersive programs.
You will essentially be playing both the role of the Product Owner with a touch of developer: you'll need to think about what the user is trying to do and then—very roughly—how it might need be implemented.
Your Viking warriors have been walking down to the local Smithy to purchase their weapons and armor for too long! It's about time there was some sort of e-commerce solution to meet their needs...
You've done your research and your warriors only have three critical goal paths:
Your assignment is to break down those high-level goals into user stories and add them to a Pivotal Tracker project. You will need to create a Pivotal Tracker account and a new (public) project, which is free. Follow the overall approach we talked about with agile stories:
You'll get into the actual development work for this project in later assignments and during the VCS program. Once you've entered the stories into your Tracker, play around with the settings of tracker. For instance, locate the burndown chart and tweak the iteration velocity to see how many stories get pulled into the current iteration.
Now go write some stories!
