User Stories in more detail

Several people at the conference last week asked me for more information about how to write user stories.  I could write a long blog with lots of examples and explanation, but someone has already done that. Check out Scott Ambler's post here.

While Scott recommends capturing stories on cards, I like to capture them initially in a spreadsheet because it makes it easier to organize and prioritize.  Once the project starts I print out the cards - instructions are in one of my earlier blogs.
