Definition of Done - A Best Practice

CPOA Exam Rebate

How do we know when a user story is “done“? Can we say that the user story is done when it is coded and all acceptance tests for it are passed?

Data Science Concepts Every Analyst Should Know

As mentioned in my previous article Three Myths About Data Science Debunked, sooner or later business analysts will be involved a project with a machine learning or AI component.
