May 2022 Chapter Meeting - MOVED to JUNE 9th

Title:

Just Get the  Requirements!


Presentation Description:

I bet you have been  asked more than once to ‘gather’ requirements. Just go and get them! The  challenge is that this is not easy.  Requirements are not something to be gathered like picking apples off a tree  filling a bushel basket. If only it were that easy! Requirements are more like  planting a tree and hoping you can get to the fruit! Requirements, especially  the right requirements require preparation, planning, skills to discover and  knowing the right kind of documentation. There is no single right way to  discover requirements, adding to the challenge. I do have a simple approach to  help make analysis easier to get the right requirements. Join this presentation  to learn how to approach the task to just get the requirements easier. It does  not matter what software development methodology you use; requirements are  still requirements. Come prepared to participate virtually and learn together!
