Schätzungen in der agilen Softwareentwicklung – zwischen Glaskugel und festem Release-Datum

Schätzungen sind ein notorisch schwieriges Thema in der Softwareentwicklung. Einerseits ähneln sie, auch wenn ausführliche Dokumentation und Spezifikationen vorliegen, oft einem Blick in die Glaskugel und werden in Zeiten von Lean und Agile von Developer-Teams oft als unnötiger Aufwand betrachtet. Andererseits sind Auftraggeber selten bereit, ein Softwareprojekt ohne Timeline und Überblick über Aufwände und Kosten anzugehen.

Dieser Vortrag behandelt pragmatische Lösungen und klärt, welche Voraussetzungen auf Seite von Entwicklern und Management gegeben sein müssen, um ein gemeinsames Verständnis für Schätzungen zu entwickeln.

Der Talk wurde auf der heise MacDev 2019 gehalten.

"Alexa, when does the keynote start?" - building VUIs for events

Designing and building VUIs (Voice User Interfaces) has its challenges - especially when they are built for events. I created the concepts for the Amazon Alexa skills for the conferences re:publica and Tech Open Air and in this talk gave an overview over the pros and cons of VUIs in general, the concept process of the event skills and decisions on the feature set.

The talk was at a Ladies That UX Berlin meetup.
