Here’s more on what I observed and learned during Agile Testing Days. I’m just going to brain dump the rest here, because otherwise I’ll never get it posted!
Janet and I had a great turnout for Lean Coffee all three mornings, despite the early hour. We averaged 20 – 25 people squeezed into two groups. The Fritze Pub is cramped so it was impossible to break into smaller groups as more people turned up. It worked fine anyway. Participants were passionate about the topics, and shared their experiences.
For a nice overview of our first Lean Coffee, plus notes about the first keynote, see Pete Walen’s excellent live blog (how DOES he do that, especially with marginal wifi): http://rhythmoftesting.blogspot.com/2013/10/live-agile-testing-days-2013-day-1.html (search on his blog for days 2 and 3)
For me, the keynote was just blah blah blah, I had to agree with Seb Rose who tweeted: “Feels like a certification course compressed into a keynote”
Walen, Matt Heusser, and Huib Schoots as – bits. My headless horseman costume purchased from Amazon was a giant fail. Sigh.
