1. Retrospect and adapt - an intro to retros

    I struggle with the concept of chores. Every time I sweep my floor, I can’t help but think that I’ll just need to sweep it again next week, and the week after that.

  2. Debrief self.conference 2019.

    The organizers of self.conference, held in Michigan, believe that a technical conference should present a mix of human and tech topics. Since one of the organizers is Test Double’s own Amber Conville, there are usually a handful of agents in attendance.

  3. Defining good work.

    What does it mean to do good work? I recently encountered this question at a content creation workshop during a brainstorming session. This particular question brought me up short because I didn’t have an answer.

  4. I'm ashamed to say it.

    When I was in college and job searching, I had an interviewing experience that still haunts my nightmares. The process involved a series of onsite conversations and activities that was meant to last all day.

  5. Debrief: Lead Dev New York 2019

    Last weekend I packed a head cold and a southern nonchalance towards weather preparation1, and flew northeast to attend The Lead Developer conference in New York. It wasn’t until I got there that it occurred to me I had bought my ticket based entirely on my experiences at the 2018 version of this conference in Austin, and had no idea who was going to be speaking at this one.

  6. Consulting like Cucumbers - Prescott's Pickle Principle

    At Test Double, we talk about pickles a lot. This isn’t because our company is home to a niche subculture of foodies, although that would be awesome. It’s also not related to Cucumber, Gherkin, or the other tasty-sounding testing tools that I often baffle my search engine with1.

  7. Learning Go: A Diplomatic Approach

    Despite the fact that it’s been around longer than I’ve been a programmer, I feel like the buzz around the Go programming language has increased of late. This might be why, a few weeks ago, the company I’m working with announced their intention to start migrating portions of their Node microservices into Go.

  8. Debrief: Lead Dev Austin 2018

    Last weekend I had the great privilege of attending LeadDev Austin. As far as I’m concerned, the folks at White October knocked it out of the park! For a one day conference where the longest talks were 30 minutes, the speakers packed in plenty of valuable information.
