The less complex the current business system and the less complex the intrinsic nature of the new feature, the less effort will be required. Therefore, less cost and time will be needed to introduce the new functionality.

The participants in this seminar will learn why, from an economic point of view, User Stories are effective.

Francesco is one of the pioneers of Extreme Programming, he has been applying User Stories since 1999. He will explain what User Stories are, how to write them and when to split them. You will be given tests to observe when your user stories are able to increase the productivity of software development.

You'll understand how to identify User Stories able to incrementally grow your software system and at the same time reduce the cost of change of those, that increase complexity and development costs instead.

You'll learn that by splitting User Stories by value, you can not only reduce the complexity of your business system but also simplify software development and enable your client to "steer" business direction any time they want.

Marco Isella

Francesco has changed the way I work, and more.

Simone Casciaroli

Senior software developer (Contractor) at Nutralete

Since attending this program with Francesco Cirillo, and learning his approach to software design, I have realized that my previous understanding of the topic was not as effective as I once thought. By understanding his approach, I have been able to significantly improve my own software design, benefiting both my team and myself. Despite the fact that my course was focused solely on software design, it has helped me become an all-around better software developer.

Matteo Regazzi

Agile Coach at inspearit Italy

Having experienced Francesco’s work and methodology in the past, I wanted to study with him again and try his mentoring program. Amazingly, I was able to regain immediate momentum, motivation, and obtain astonishing results, even though working remotely. This was also due in part to the organization of the sessions, which were always efficient and productive. One of the best investments I have ever made in myself. Thank you!
