Best of “As a developer, I want…” student user stories, raw and unfiltered

Over on Twitter, the ever amazing and amusing time sink, @AdamPridmore, @KevlinHenney, and @JensColdewey are discussing the merit of software developers as stakeholders in user stories.

Despair not! I’ve got the goods. From my Scrum student projects (I run those day-in, day-out), here is the classic one:

As a developer, I want to learn Java to be able to program and earn a top grade.

I looked through the last few feature archives (the place where stories go to rest) from my student projects. Here are some fine exemplars of developer user stories. Have fun!
