Title
Be careful when entering a casino - why we stopped playing poker
Description

From time to time every software developer has to answer one difficult question... "How much time do you need to get it done?" Even though giving an answer may be difficult, evading it inevitably leads to military escalation between developers and managers.

A more or less standard way to do estimation in many agile processes is some variation of planning poker. Implementing it in our projects turned out to be more difficult than we expected.

In the talk I will cover the way we introduced planning poker, the reasons why we stopped playing it and what we now do instead. How we use post-its and whiteboard to run a project (track progress) and to sell a project (given that in our world a bid has nothing to do with agile).
