Folks, I've got a ton of ideas to take Creative Chaos. I've been spending more and more time lately involved in discussions of KanBan - which is an evolving method that is slowly competing with Scrum.
I could write about the aspects of software quality that are hard to define requirements for - scalability, performance, reliability, usability - and what to do about it.
I could put more meat on the bones of "when should a test be automated?" (or "run unattended?")
I could talk about the business of software development, negotiating for nerds, or the dynamics of maintenance and legacy software.
Or I could just post more stories from my youth as a military cadet.
I'm probably most interested in exploring the idea of uncertainty. After all, we can't predict the future - yet we have these things called project plans with dates and deadlines and deliverables.
Those are just some of my the ideas bouncing around in my head. Still, at this point, after three years of evolution, you - the audience of Creative Chaos, might know better than me what to do next, because you know what appeals to you and why.
I covet your feedback, and promise to respond and take it seriously.
And, if you've ever just wanted a chance to heckle ... now's you chance.
Please consider leaving a comment for this post; it's your chance to steer the ship.
