We will collectively discuss the art of Agile Modeling (AM) for productive Disciplined Agile (DA) modeling and documentation based upon the research of Scott W. Ambler (see copyright picture above).

Discussion will include practical principles, modeling techniques, and experiences 'on the job'. Some techniques we will consider: Context Models, User Stories (including effective definition of User Acceptance Criteria for Test Driven Development), UI Flows and Mock-ups (low fidelity), Data Models (logical and physical), and others you have found useful.

A list of practical reference material will be provided.
