      Hi Sachin,

      This would be very basic session, nothing new in the Agenda! However, I would try to explain the concept of Agile, Scrum, XP clearly. I also noticed that Sizing in Agile is of good interest among the professionals, which I would like to explain in detail with example/exercise.

      I have given session in Techgig (same Agenda) and more that 1100 people attended, so I realized the need for this session.
