product backlog grooming

Contributor(s): Matt Savage

Product backlog grooming, also called product backlog refining, is an Agile software development process in which the development team revisits a product backlog that has been pre-defined by the team's facilitator. 

A backlog is a set of tasks that must be finished before code can be released.  During a product backlog grooming session, the development team works with business owners to prioritize a list of work that is backlogged and break the list into user stories for future use.

hello, i work in pet grooming company and i am interested in learning ways on how to contact the mobile groomers from our offices.
I would like to know how we can connect our pet grooming services to the cloud. Specifically, people can make reservation for grooming on their mobile phone. Perhaps, we can have some promotional discount sometimes to attract more people to our store. Do you have any tips? Thanks.
