I could continue to explore the tech debt metaphor, or tell you what it's like to plan a peer conference of it's size.
I am continuing to read Peter Drucker, and have several gems that I could post and discuss.
I've been considering the formulaic "four steps to success" programs that are so popular in development and testing, and alternatives to them. I have posts on this.
I could explore what I see as two kinds of QA - the intense, critical thinking school and the defined/documented/prevention school - and some of the tragic hilarity that results when people get the two confused.
I have a number of posts planned about th expectations gap between devs, testers, and product management, and how to deal with questions like "Why didn't QA catch that?" or "From now on, you should test for (whatever went wrong today) on every cycle" - or what to do when you realize that the team won't hit the date a month before anyone else does.
... but that's the stuff I'd like to talk about.
What do you want to read? What do you want to hear? What interests you?
Without feedback, I'm just a talking head, floating in space.
Please help me out here ...
