I’m at Belgium Testing Days, and in about 90 minutes, I’ll be giving a lightning talk as part of a keynote. I love lightning talks because I love to talk and I love the challenge of a 5-minute, go-for-broke, get-it-organized, and do-it. And, it’s an excuse to drink a lot of cold caffeine in preparation.
The problem I’m having today is this: the topic. I can’t decide between: the manager’s role in the agile organization (this isn’t an agile conference); how we got to think that 100% utilization is reasonable and how to change people’s minds (could be boring since I haven’t written a lot yet); acknowledging technical debt at all levels (a possibility); why chocolate is like testing (because you never know what you’ll find inside). I’m not sure I can carry off enough humor for the chocolate one.
If you comment or tweet quickly enough, I’ll be able to listen to you in time to take your comments and tweets into consideration!
