What is Planning Poker?
Planning poker, also called Scrum poker, is a consensus-based, gamified technique for estimating, mostly used to estimate effort or relative size of development goals in software development. In planning poker, members of the group make estimates by playing numbered cards face-down to the table, instead of speaking them aloud. More Information.
This version of Planning Poker uses a Snap Lens! Made as an experiment to add some fun to a planning poker session with a remote team on a Video Conference Call using Snap Camera.
How to play
- Share the User Story or thing to be estimated.
- Each person takes a minute to think about effort and estimate.
- Raise your eyebrows to increase your estimate.
- Open your mouth to decrease your estimate.
- The estimate changes in a panel that only you can see.
- When ready, everyone shows their estimates simultaneously by raising their hands.
- People with high estimates and low estimates are given the floor to offer their justification for their estimate and then discussion continues.
- Repeat the estimation process until a consensus is reached.
- Make a note of the estimate and move to the next thing.
- Decided to try using eyebrows and mouth rather than TAP as was looking for a way to change the cards with Snap Camera in the background during a call.
- Used the Soundboard Template to setup different cameras for what the User could see locally vs what was seen by others on the call.
- Used the Hand Object Tracking so you could hide your estimate until everyone was ready.
