Bugs, Bugs, and More Bugs!

In my agile coaching and training journey, I spend a lot of time discussing a wide variety of topics. But certain themes form a Top 10 topics list everyone seems interested in.

One of those items is how to handle bugs. I get questions like:

Do you estimate bugs (planning poker – points)?
Are bugs equivalent to stories?
When do you file a bug while sprinting?
Do you count bugs as part of your velocity?
Can you deliver a story in a sprint with bugs still open?
